Sometimes pushing seat as far forward as possible will give enough access but if not you either need to remove seat. Don't try that on your own as they weigh a ton. You can however remove the two front bolts holding down the seat and then remove the rear bolt (torx type) nearest the door, loosen the other rear bolt and swivel the seat on that bolt. You should be able to swivel it out of the way and give you the access you need, I did it on my Nuevo.

Batteries under the seat rings a bell with me. Our Transit based Rienza is the same. The seat is heavy but rather than removing it completely I tipped it on to the passenger seat. I could just get the back battery out with the seat pushed to the front but the front battery wouldn’t with the seat in. 
Getting them back in was so much easier with gravity and my son helping by guiding the wiring out of the way. Even so we missed a black wire for the fridge relay.

I had a similar problem..I eventually realised that the nuts I was trying to remove were holding the seat down. 
Swivel the seat.. you will see a cover ..mine has hex nuts that I removed with an Allen key.. the battery is then easy to remove

If I remember on my 2002 Nuevo, the back panel on the seat base is removable and the battery can be tilted and removed, and replaced in the same way
