I'm interested in hearing if anyone has experienced an exploding battery from their Benz.
I replaced my original battery from my 2001 E320 last Friday and I was returning the battery to an auto parts store in MD. When I removed the battery from my trunk it exploded!
I've heard (over the last 36 hours) that hydrogen can accumulate in older batteries however, this is obviously a safety concern.
I feel very luck to still be alive with only a bunch of cuts, a broken toe and a broken/lacerated nose.
Does anyone know of this happening?
I've called Benz corp to report the issue.
Thanks for any feedback,
