Next we removed the battery covers and began taking out the cells. Each cell was inspected and had it's voltage recorded before being packed away.

There was some minor corrosion on some cell to cell connections. The screws were either loose or broken from being over tightened. On a number of the tabs that had cables connected to them, there was more significant corrosion.
