2002 c240 fails to start on the first try

It's been a couple of months. It mostly happens in the morning. It doesn't start when I turn the key for the first time. The second time always works (so far). I was told the battery was low when I visited dealer about a month ago. Is it caused by the bad battery? Where can i find the instruction to replace the battery by myself?

If you don't know how to replace a battery yourself, then it is best handled by a mechanic or pro. If the battery is the factory unit from 02, then is well past its replacement date. The thing is most likely shot.
