I just finished changing the battery myself on my own 2006 CLK500, so its clear in my mind. The battery is located under the hood (near the firewall) on the passengers side, just under the black plastic air cleaner housing, that is held in place by 3 metal clips. You need to unclip 3 clips, lift the air cleaner housing up and out to expose the 12V battery. You need a 10mm hex driver to remove the post clamps and a 13mm socket on the end of a 16 inch extension with ratchet to remove the 2 battery hold-down bolts, that are a bit hard to see without a flashlight (from the top, looking down). Remove the 13mm nuts and the bracket that holds the base of the battery in place and remove the battery. Installation is the reverse. Don't forget to install the battery acid drain hose and elbow, by removing it from the old battery. (It doesn't come with the new battery ($224.00 retail for new 12V battery). Also $35 core charge from Mercedes. That's it. And you'll have to reset your clock.

Battery was changed, now car won't start key stuck in ignition.


Can you turn the key ? ON - OFF Who changed the battery ? When you change a battery you need to use an external battery supply till new battery is in , so this doesn't happen ! You may need to have it towed to the dealer to have a module reset done ! Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems

I have a 98 corvette I changed the battery and the car won't turn over


Why did you change the battery? Was the car running before you changed the battery? Did you remove your negative cable first before your positive cable on your battery? I ask cause sometimes people ground the positive cable to ground when they remove their battery and blow a fuse or relay. If they are good check your battery and starter you might have a loose cable. Let me know how you make out.

I HAVE A SURESAFE20ES; BATTERY IS DEAD; WHERE DO I OPEN TO CHANGE THE BATTERY? IT'S PRETTY URGENT


You need to charge the battery...not change it. If you can get a charge into it try a factory default code like 7777 to try to reprogram the safe.

My 2002 s600 is not starting after I changed the dead battery


Which battery did you change? There are two batteries installed on your vehicle. There is a battery in the trunk on the right side which is called the systems battery which supplies power to the electronics of the vehicle and the second battery is under the hood near the bottom of the windshield. The battery under the hood is the starter battery. Check and/or replace that battery and let me know what happens.

How do you change the battery?


I think it takes a GM type GROUP 75 battery. If its like a Sebring? After you take the left wheel off and the splash shield, its easy.

How do i change my car battery without losing my radio.


You need to keep a supply to it. You can buy various devices that plug into your cigar lighter. The quite simply have one of these square 9 volt radio type batteries in them. This keeps power on while changing battery. You could easily make something up with one of these batteries and a couple of leads going to the terminals after loosening the bolts. Be careful though and make sure your wires are secure so the do not come off while wrestling with the battery.
