I just bought a 2011 700 Prowler. No manuals, but a weak/dead battery! I can not see how to remove the battery. I have read several 'postings' that talk about removing screws in the driver's side rear wheel well and prying the shield back to loosen a larger nut and the battery comes out the 'back'.

1)Does the battery come out through the wheel well?
2) If so, is there a diagram of which screws/nuts to remove; or do I just remove them all?
3) Why does it look like (from the top, after I remove the seat and case cover) the battery case is molded as one piece - it does not look like the battery can possibly be removed from any direction except the top?
Any help will be greatly appreciated - I want to drive this machine!

Should get you there, just select the manual you need.
Mine comes out from the top. You need to pull everything out below the seat to get to it. Its a rotten design, but a guy here named RD, can help take care of that. Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the forum BigPine! Great machine the 700! I've beat on mine pretty good and it keeps coming back for more! I have a 2009 XTX, and the battery does come out thru the wheel well, Later models come out thru the top under the seat base. The later models also had a slightly larger rated battery. I think the later models came with the 400CCA batteries. In the frequently asked questions section, there is a post on batteries. Ideas range from stock battery, to multiple batteries, to a full size (Group27) battery install. I run two batteries on mine, I like the redundancy on the trails!

2009 700EFI XTX, , AC Winch, 2010 Dust Shield EPI Sport Utility Clutch Kit , Street Legal, Cage chopped 2 ", Aluminum Diamond Plate Trim, Relocated Factory Bladders with covers, 5 Pt. Harness installed, Bed Tiedown System, Scat Pro-Car Seats, Secondary Battery installed, Oil Pressure, Oil/CVT Temperature, Volt Meter & Water Temp Gauges installed with Dash Plate, Bighorns, ITP Black 212 Wheels. Tonneau cover. 750 Big Bore Kit, Web Cam, and Rocker Arms.
