    Removing Nikon N2000 battery pack?

    I did a search but couldn't find an answer. How do I remove the battery pack in a Nikon N2000? I got the camera recently and downloaded the instruction manual, which says "remove the bracket." The illustration, not too clear, shows fingers lifting a device and pulling the pack straight out. I couldn't find any bracket in the camera. The battery pack just has 2 clips, each holding down 2 batteries. The pack is in tight and I don't want to force anything. I'm wondering if this part is missing or if it's me who is missing something.
    Any help would be much appreciated!

    There should be a white dot at one end if it's the right way up. At the other end there should be a small black fabric tag, just pull that to yank the tray out. Figure 3 in the instructions (labelled 'remove the bracket') shows that tag being gripped.

    P.S. There's nothing in there that I would call a 'bracket', I'd call the part a 'battery tray' or a 'battery holder'.

    Thank you, snapguy and nthearle. I got the battery tray out with a small pair of tweezers, prying and lifting carefully. Not something you want to do in a hurry. I guess the camera lost that fabric tag somewhere along the line. I have a Nikkormat FT3 and an FE and half a dozen lenses. I'm looking forward to using the N2000 for rapid shooting.

    The N2000 has the best viewfinder exposure readout of any manual Nikon. I got good exps for 10 yrs before I wore the thing out (I bought it used}.

    I think that maybe the FA's matrix metering & the F3's 80/20 may top it for accuracy in demanding situations in the manual focus Nikon line-up? Admittedly I only ever put one film through my N2000/F301 before deciding that I hated the viewfinder display & the way that it handled being the first of the plastic Nikon's. The film did come out OK though.

    Don't remember the part number, but Nikon made 2 battery packs, one for AA batteries and one for AAA

    It is the MB-3 that uses AAs. The standard AAA holder is called MB-4.

    I've bought three used N2000s. All three had the AAA battery caddy, which works great. I looked for the AA version but couldn't find any at the time. One of my N2000 bodies died from battery corrosion, so I always remove the batts when not in use. I've never had a modern button battery corrode on me, but AAs and AAAs seem to blow with some frequency in my experience. Anyway, just a suggestion.
    I confess I'm a gear nut within my price range. ;)
