Are you sure yours slides?

Was it movable before?

Some time in the past years, don't remember which year, when they switched the batteries from flooded lead acid to AGM, the slide was replaced with a fixed tray.

If yours is a slide, then it must have rusted. You can use penetration oil to free it.

I used a lot of wd40 piece of wood and hammer slowly tapped and pull by hand to slide the battery and tray out.
