Electric Golf Buggy Battery Removal Procedure

To prevent accidental vehicle movement ensure that the parking brake is set and/or wedge the wheels. Place buggy into Tow/Maintenance Mode.

Take a good clear image/photo/drawing of the batteries as they sit before removing any cables or nuts. Make sure you are clear of the order in which the batteries are fitted and where the cables are to be reconnected.

Always wear the correct protective clothing when handling batteries.


  1. Turn vehicle key to the OFF position and remove the key.
  2. Using an insulated wrench disconnect the main negative (-) BL- battery cable.
  3. Using an insulated wrench disconnect the main positive (+) BL+ battery cable.
  4. Using an insulated wrench disconnect and remove all other wires connected to the batteries.
  5. Remove the two pan head torx screws (one on each side) from the battery strap.
  6. Remove the battery hold down’s and the battery strap by loosening all hex nuts until they are at the end of the j-bolt and un-hooking the j-bolts from the battery tray. When removing the j-bolts from between the batteries it may help to tilt the battery to the outside of the vehicle to release the pressure of the j-bolt.
  7. Remove the batteries using a commercially available battery carrier strap and a portable lifting device. Remove the batteries one at a time. Depending upon the model of buggy, some will have 4 batteries and some will have 6 or 8 batteries, use the carrier straps to tilt the batteries for easier removal and away from the body of the buggy. Lift the batteries up and away from the buggy.
  8. Check the area surrounding the battery tray for corrosion. If any is found this can be removed with a wire brush (for metal bodies) or a stiff plastic brush ( for plastic bodies). This area can then be washed with bicarbonate of soda and water and dried thoroughly. Clean metal surfaces can be primed and painted with rust free paint if required.

Batteries are heavy. Use proper lifting techniques when moving them. Always lift the battery with a commercially available battery lifting device. Use care not to tip batteries when removing or installing them; spilled electrolyte can cause burns and damage.

To prevent accidental vehicle movement, insure the parking brake is set and/or chock the wheels.

Never remove a battery with an exposed cell.
