Re: Replacing battery on 2004 1150 RT

your instructions were very helpful in getting to the battery on my 1150 RT.
I had gotten some instructions from another site, however, they left out one
very important point that you brought out,...how to remove the mirrow. This
had me stumped until I read your post. 
Do you have any suggestions as to the best place to get a replacement
