I have a bolex H16 Battery (black plastic case with XLR) that I need to open and recell.  There are 4 bolt heads recessed on each side, but there is no way to get onto them.  Any advice on opening it up?

Are the "bolt heads" actually bolts, or just plastic or rubber plugs concealing screws? Try levering one out.

Got it.  The "bolt heads" are glued-on covers.  Took more force than I was first willing to try.  thanks guys.
