1. Cut off the sleeves of the new replacement cells, slice with a razor down towards the negative side, then peel away using your fingers.

2. Push the replacement cells down into the sleeve using your thumbs. They push down fairly easily once the sleeves are off, and it's better to NOT use a hammer on the cells if you don't have too. Be sure to triple check you have the cell facing the proper direction, POS or NEG side must match the original layout.

Default More info needed

Thanks for the updates. I'm about ready to take my spare battery apart and your photos and dialogue have helped.
I originally tried to charge the battery using a CC power supply at 60V and 2.5 A. all seemed to go well but slowly. The next day the current had dropped to 0A and the voltage also to 0V. Have I done something to the BMS or does it self protect with some sort of fuse?

Im no expert, but from all that Ive read, and successfully bringing back 3 out of 4 batteries myself, This doesn't look good agkirk.

The charging method discussed here talks about charging to 60 Volts at 100ma, which is .1 Amps, not 2.5 Amps. Did you follow the pdf here?

Charging higher is not recommended as it would likely damage the cells. If there was any life left in those cells, I doubt there is anymore.. sorry man, it doesn't look good for that battery.
