Hi

I need to replace the battery in my car. The old battery is quite large.

I typed my reg into eurocarparts, and they suggested a load of different types. Some were small sized batteries (length 278mm) while the old one from my car looks more like their 353mm length type.

Would the smaller batteries be ok, or do i have to use the same size battery?

I mean, if the smaller ones were not ok, why would eurocarparts recommend it for my vehicle?

thanks

Any battery that properly fits the Mercedes battery mount, and has the proper external vent, will work fine.

If you need to save money, do it. If it's going to make you lose sleep, by the original size.

I think i will go for one of these smaller types. I phoned up a few places and they all mentioned this size as an option.
