Battery retrofit part one
Dutch ZOE driver and enthusiast Harm Otten was #3 in The Netherlands to have the battery of his Q210 upgraded to the ZE40 type. He was allowed to take pictures of the procedure done only yesterday and I want to thank him and the Arend Auto Eindhoven dealership for sharing them in public.
Battery as it arrived
Packaging opened. Note the HV disconnect plug that ends up under the foot well of the right front seat
Lifting out the battery using an engine lift. Note the “chimney”. More on that later.
Rolling it to the car on the lifting table
Lifting it in “the cavity”
Bolting it against the chassis with 8 bolts
New decoration 🙂
