1986 Ford Club Wagon- problem with battery bracket

Asked by Jun 21, 2017 at 07:52 PM about the 1986 Ford E-150 Club Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm trying to change the battery on my van and there is a bracket which is
making it difficult. The bracket attaches to the van frame and the battery hold
down. I removed the hold down but the bracket is still in the way. Should I
detach it from the frame? Please see photo.

Yes remove it

I was afraid you'd say that. LOL It looks pretty tight. Thanks!


It looks like you may be able to bend it jus enough out of the way to get the battery out
