With the battery out there are 3 hex bolts for the lock. Loosen those 3 and you can slide it to where you want it. I imagine you'll want to slide it up just a smidge to bring the battery tighter to the frame.

Those 2 security bolts in the picture will adjust the distance of lock to latch which is most likely fine unless you're having a tough time either dropping the battery out (too tight) or the battery has some movement (too loose)

Thanks for your reply. i just saw 2 bolts on the left (in direction of drive). Could you please take a picture and mark those bolts? Thanks in advance!

My dealer said thats a common problem with giant trance e+ bikes and "it looks like
that's still in tolerance"

What do you guys think?

Hi Michael

Its not proper!

The upper bracket needs to be moved further into the frame. Its a pretty straight fwd adjustment. Takes about 20 mins

Joe :coffee:

Just loosen, slide to adjust. then tighten. You may have to do it a few times to get the fit you want...

Okay, it looks like the upper battery bracket is in the lowest possible position. What about the lock cylinder? Does it have enough space to move? or do I have to adjust the extra afterwards? Because it goes straight through the hole in the frame.

You'll want to slide it up a smidge as that will bring the battery in tighter with the frame. Looks way too clean... You need to go ride 😁

I have now adjusted the lock and the battery is now properly seated. However, it is now extremely difficult to open the lock. The battery does not fall out by itself. I have to pull them out manually. I once read that the two small screws under the frame are there for this. Can someone describe the adjustment procedure here please? Thanks!

Mine is very similar. Try adding some spray lube to the key lock.

My battery, most of time, takes a bit of effort to dislodge. When loading the battery, it takes 2 attempts to get the battery fully locked into place. If not, the battery drops out to the safety stop

It's the same basic procedure. Loosen up the security torx bolts slide/adjust as appropriate. First try with the battery in, loosen the two bolts and "jiggle" it to let it settle into place then re-tighten.

If that doesn't work and with the security torx bolts loose does the battery drop as expected ? If not your previous adjustment is probably too tight.
