How to remove the battery from Fiat 500e? This is not an easy operation like the Toyota or Lexus hybrids. Most hybrids have placed a traction battery in the trunk of the car, just behind the rear bench. Battery HV (high voltage) Fiat 500e I find myself under the car. To expose the box containing 96 lithium ion target, electric fifty hundred, we need to start by dismantling the rear bridge. Before unscrewing the first screws, be sure to disconnect the battery fuse under the rear seat.
The next step is to disconnect the braking system components: brake lines, hand ropes and ABS sensors. Then we disassemble the aerodynamic covers and proceed to disconnect the high voltage, grounding and CAN networks. We drain the coolant and we can start the procedure of lowering the battery box HV
