How to add water to these batteries?

I have the generic black batteries with no markings that came from the factory. How do you check/add water to these? It looks like the cap should come off somehow, but I can't figure it out...I don't want to pry hard enough to do damage....

Picture of top of Bats would help. Should be 2 oval covers about mid point of bat. the pry up if that's what you have. Then fill as needed with distilled water.

These are the batteries...seems like the half opposite the lugs should come off?

Those look like AGM's, no water needed.

Thanks for posting!

My batteries look the same in my 2015 3170ds and I wasn't sure either.

Definately not AGM's...I can hear the water sloshing around inside when I move them...label on top says not to tip them and keep the vent cap level and tight.

You might be able to pry that part up. The hard part will be to seal it back together. Are they bad?
What does the voltage check?

Have had same battery in my Sunseeker. Don't bother with water. Replace the batteries with Interstates or better. Factory batteries are bad news.
