@Erich_H ,
Those batteries look pretty badly rotted and frozen in place. My first thought is to ‘loosen’ and remove them one at a time. The top batt seems to have the least amt of rot so I’d start there. My first step would be to soften the rot by dropping a mild acid-like lemon juice or vinegar down the side. Wait a while then try moving it. You’ll probably need to do that several times. Remember to give the chems time to act.

When the batt wiggles you can try your screw idea or try driving a screwdriver straight into the end. Twist and wiggle till the batt is really free moving then try removing it by whatever means you choose.

Unfortunately the rot my be so severe the terminals may be damaged/destroyed. You’ll only find that out by getting the job done.

Let us know how fared.

Thanks for your tip! Frozen in place is just the middle name. Getting vinegar out now!
