    Page 122 of my rider's manual says: to remove the battery holder "press the lock 1 and remove the relay 2".

    I can't get the relay to move. Has anyone got any advice? I can't figure out if I'm supposed to slide it forward, backward, twist it, lift it up or what.

    Until I do this, I can't get at the screw to remove the battery holder plate in order to remove and replace the battery.

    On my 2010 F800ST, this relay wasn't there, so there was no problem accessing the screw.

    Any help appreciated.

    I've sorted it out now. For info, the rear part of the electrical relay slides out backwards.

    Good to hear you sorted it out. The BMW manual is sometimes as clear as mud. That's why I have a Haynes manual also.
