Question about 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK 500
Posted by Anonymous on
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.
