hypothetical -driving and battery disconnects?
I test drove a 400se (w140) this morning. While driving it a few faint muffled bumps and bangs were heard coming from the boot area. Knowing that Merc puts its batterys in the boots. I stopped to have a look.
The battery (wrong size) was simply floating in its tray - the only thing that even slightly held it in place were the battery leads.
My query - what would have happened if the battery disconnected while driving on the road at speed? I had dreadfull thoughts of a very sudden stop.
But i am not sure - still scared the bagezers out of me thinking about it?
Does anyone heard of this happening?
