RE: How Do You Remove A Battery From A 2001 S500?
open the trunk, raise the trunk mat, or remove it.
its on the right hand side of the trunk. you will need a ratchet, at least a 6 " inch extension (10" or 12" is better) and a 13 mm socket and wrench. first, disconnect the negative battery cable. then disconnect the positive side. then, look down in front of the battery (might need a flash light if its dark out) and you will see one 13 mm bolt holding downa a clamping plate. removed that bolt. the battery will then be able to lift out of that compartment. it weighs about 65 pounds, so it can be akward going. when reinstalling, clamp it down, connect positive first, then ground. good luck.
