There are generally 4 screws, one in each corner of the sled rails that the Univolt is built on. It tough locations they may or may not all be there, but generally the things were put down and then the bathroom was built over them.

I know this may sound crude, but since the beast is basically useless anyway, a pry bar slipped under it and forcing it up to pull the screws out of the floor may be the best way to remove it. My experience is that the original screws were not very big to begin with, and if they are impossible to get at, they will pull out doing very little damage to the floor. Or, you could just leave it in place and put a new unit in in a handy location, removing the wires from the old one.

Yes it needs to come out because I can't reach the wires to rewire it in its present location
Just to reach in a pull out the old round type glass fuses is a big chore !

I had one like that in my '74 Argosy, tucked back in a corner, accessible only through a small opening under the lower shelf in a bathroom closet. Mine had already worked itself loose and in fact was jumping up and down on the wires, causing shorts. I used the pry bar technique above to take the last screws out and pulled it far enough into the closet to remove the wires, then all the way out to the dumpster. I mounted the new one on the back closet wall, along with a new fuse panel. It was a good improvement.

THere may be only one screw holding the univolt in place. The other two screws may be in slots, (not holes) to allow you to take one screw out and slide the univolt out.
The original Univolt was installed that way in both my '76 25' and my '76 31'
