Dear Caitlindad, If we Hideous Makita Orange pod owners are foolhardy enough to attempt to rebuild a battery pack, I think most of us could find ANY fasteners. Batvette is correct: The only ways into the pod are all destructive in nature. I had one pod professionally rebuilt, and it came back with some telltale gray smears of JB Weld on the bottom.
I have decided that if I have to go in, by golly, I'm not rebuilding with NiCD cells! I'm going to switch to NiMH cells, and get around the problem of an incompatible charger by using a mini-windmill to re-charge it. I have some junked kitchen exhaust fan motors that I'm going to extend the fan blades on and use the trickling electricity to re-charge the battery pack. From other stuff I've read about NiMH batteries, the more slowly they are charged, the better. Don't worry - success or failure - I'll be posting a blow-by-blow account.
