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.
You must be the person that wrote another question. Now I understand that one. OK. To change the outside door handle, you must open the door and roll up the window. ( Not necessarily in that order.) Then you must remove the door panel, being very careful not to break or lose the several plastic and/or metal clips that hold it on. Normally, there may also be a few screws as well. After that, remove the plastic water cover that covers the sheet metal of the door. Keep this to install later, you will need some good tape to put it back on. Find some sockets and wrenches that will remove the handle nuts from the inside of the door through holes you can see. Most of the handles have wire-like rods that are have plastic tips that can come apart for removal of the handle or latch. Be sure not to break these, as then the handles will no longer work.
equipped with an SID (Saab Information Display) unit that displays various information about the amount of fuel left, the radio station
you're listening to and the key's battery status. It is time to change
your key batteries if the key stops working or responds slower than
usual. The SID on your car will also say "Replace Key Battery."
Saab keys use either a CR 2032 or a CR 1632 battery depending on key
type. There are two types of keys. The first generation key has one key
and a transponder and the second generation key is a one piece key with a
built in transponder.
First Generation Key
Loosen the single screw that is located by the key ring. Use
the small Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw that is on top of the
Lift the plastic top. Remove the old battery and insert the new CR 2032 battery.
Put the transponder back together and tighten the screw using the Phillips screwdriver.
Press the alarm five times to re-synchronize the transponder with your car.
Second Generation Key
Push the plastic catch with the pushpin to open the cover
latch. The transponder has a plastic catch that is hard to depress. The
pushpin will separate it.
Lift the plastic cover. Remove the old battery and replace it with the new CR 1632 battery. Position the battery properly.
Put the cover back and press the plastic together.
Test the transponder with your car to make sure it is working.
all batteries are clamped into place by one means or another.remove battery cables.remove plastic cover,if equipped.at bottom of battery,locate plastic clamp or 'wedge' with a single small bolt through the center,holding it to the bottom of the battery box.remove bolt & clamp.connect + cable first,then - when reinstalling.
Yes, you can. This is a standard "DIN" opening. Width and height are specified; but not depth. The plastic empty space tray immediately below the radio - actually make this a "2 Din space"
If you are electrically savy - carefully remove the black trim bezel (two hidden fasteners in the middle section and a couple at the bottom; and a hidden white plastic tab buried way in the back at the bottom - need a long screwdriver to release - accessed only after removing the ash-tray...
I am not aware of any pre-existing wire harness adapter...
Electrically savy - get the above out - and then measure the available depth. You can get several molex connectors from Radio Shack, and cut the current wires - and put connectors on them - so that you can reconnect the original factory radio easily. Unplug those, and make molex fittings going to the wiring for your new radio connecting to the molex you put on the factory wiring.
I'm currently looking at putting in a satellite navigation radio with screen, dvd player, etc. into my 1988 Camry which I've owned since new. Only new car we ever bought.... Good luck.
All of the Focus model lights are identical. I recently installed Sylvania Cool Blue's on my '01 ZX3.
Pop the hood. At the front of the car, look to the back of the headlight assembly. There will be a plastic cover on the back. On some models, you need to unscrew the plastic cap; on others, it just pops or screws off.
There is a small retaining clip that surrounds and holds the bulb in place. Removing the clip can be tricky. On my Focus Wagon, there is a special place to push and release the clip that is above the bulb - perhaps further above than you might think. Gently push this aside with your hand and the bulb assembly will come right out. Just remove the original bulb and pop the new one in. These bulbs have a standard three-prong setup so there's only one way to install the new bulb. Pop the assembly back in place, attach the retaining clip and put the plastic cover back on.
On the driver's side, you may want to remove the battery cover to give yourself a little extra room to work.
No tools. 10 minutes.
They say you do not have to remove the wheel, but I tried and had no luck so I just went ahead and removed the wheel, it gives you more room to work with when pulling the old battery out and putting a new one in.
You need to remove the plastice shield, (3 plastic screws into core support, 1 screw to air filter housing). Under that you will see the battery hold down. Remove the one 12mm bolt and replace battery.
