My wife drives a Mercedes C-300. After almost 5 years, its battery went bad. Searching under the hood and in the trunk, we couldn’t find the battery. We went on line to ask for directions. We got the instructiions and followed them, but still no battery. There were several chat sites with others feeling the same frustrations. We called AAA. The help- company sent a tech. He and my retired engineer wife combined to find the battery hidden under a camouflaged corner of the hood. The tech had a new battery that fit, but didn’t have the special tool needed to replace the old with the new. There were two more steps in this drama involving two very helpful repair shops. One of them had the special tool. Finally, my wife’s Mercedes is driveable again and we know where the battery is. We’re wondering why Mercedes-Benz hid it in the first place.
Where’s the battery?
