2005 SL 65 AMG maintenance-free battery?
Dumb question, but.......Does anyone know if battery, that is in the engine bay of SL65, that is dedicated to starting the V-12 motor, is maintenance free?
The battery has 6 filler caps which would indicate to me that distilled water should be added to top up each cell, when they are lower than fill point of each cell?
I was advised this battery was maintenance free by two dealers despite the battery style with the access caps? Not confident in their answers....
Battery in trunk for accessories is sealed off with an adhesive material, so I assume this is maintenance free, i.e. no adding of distilled water, etc...
Any info or experience would be helpful.....car has 33k miles and battery is about 6 years old....
