Mercedes Sl 500 96 Battery dead!
I have an SL 500 from 96 and the battery is dead. It has not been out of the garage for a long time.
The problem is that the battery is located in the trunk compartment and i cannot acess it with the battery being dead.
I have read other threads about this problem and have not found an answer to my current predicament.
Is there a way to recharge the battery from the engine room? I don't know much about cars so i could not find anything, despite reading that i could somehow recharge it from the upper left side.
I have also tried to find a charger for the cigar socket but could not find one (I live in Denmark).
I will attach some pictures of the front end and one of the pictures has a close up of what i think might be where i should connect the positive. I'm also told that the negative can be put anywhere on the chassis. Is there any truth to this?
Thanks in advance.
