Can you tell us where this wire is fixed to the battery?

If it goes to either of the terminals then it should be removed when all the nuts are removed allowing all the connector plates to be taken off. The fixing to the battery posts is 10mm and cannot really be reached unless the battery is out of the car. When I did this all the cables were clear of the battery by removing the various plates, unbolt the lock down clamp bolt and the battery is free to be lifted out. The breather tube is fitted to the top edge of the battery on one of the short sides.

A photo might help if nothing else does!!
