SOURCE: windshield washer reservoir tank is leaking how do I replace?

You must remove from it's mount and empty out any fluids that is in tank.fill the tank with water and locate where the leak is coming from. wash tank a few times and the let dry upside down. Get some sand paper (80  grit course) and sand area where leak is, clean area with a vacume or clean can buy a 2 stage epoxy that comes in an injection form and squeeze it out on a pc of paper and then get a q-tip and mix the 2 components together, fill the crack or hole generously with the q-tip, if you have to,let dry for 24 hours and mix more and put more on. let dry another 24 hours, replace tank back in it's place and you've solved your leak. (epoxy does wonders if its used properly.

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid reservoir - MB ML 350

right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.

Where is the battery located?

It's directly under the windshield washer tank behind the fender wall. It should be secured down by a strap or a bar. I believe you have to access it through your wheel well by removing the wheel well cover

How to get to the batter in the car

As best I remember, you need to remove a metal strut that runs from the left side along the fender to the front body crosspiece. It's two or three bolts. Remove the windshield washer reservoir (plastic), another two bolts. Then you will see the battery tray. Install the battery and holddowns, and connect the cables (side connectors). Replace the windshield washer reservoir and reinstall the strut.
