I need to replace my battery but can’t remove the dern plastic strap that holds it in place. The head of the bolt is fine but the threading underneath is just spinning in place. I can’t figure out how to access it. I read one or two other instances of this happening on other Ducatis but no clear resolution. Any ideas? FML....

Happened to me on my ENDURO, simple fix cut the plastic strap with whatever you have dremel, hacksaw, air cutoff.

It's not really needed once the seat is put back on IMHO

Ducati replaced my whole seat pan 6 months later under warranty.

I had this happen on my 2011, the brass thread insert is spinning in the plastic. My solution was to drill out the bolt and then do the same with the brass thread insert. Then install a rivnut and install the strap with another bolt same as the original.
