I too had corrosion on the post. I cleaned it off with a brush while holding the shop vac there to pick up the bits. I then sprayed with battery terminal corrosion spray. From what I can tell this is the original battery in my 08 and just clicked over the 5 year in service date. What pisses me off, is this should have been caught during the CPO inspection ( along with a bunch of other items I have to have addressed)Understand this is an old thread, but after removing the cover under the passenger seat of my '07 ML350, I found serious corrosion on a battery post today.
Saw a previous post in this thread that AGM's don't experience port corrosion, but it's a Mercedes battery (correct part #, etc).
Has anyone else had that issue? I don't want to blindly drop in a new battery if there's some other issue i should be addressing first.
I had my battery replaced at an Indy shop. Now my RES (rear dvd) screen wont power up. The player has power, accepts discs, etc but the screen has no power. Can this be related? Is there a reset needed for the RES monitor?The Owner's Manual has instructions on how to remove the battery and how to reset things like windows and sunroof afterwards. It ain't rocket science.
They recommend we bring it in because it's easy money.I apparently need to replace the battery on my '06 ML 350. The OM states that replacing the battery located under the passenger seat is a "complicated and technically demanding procedure" that MB "strongly recommends be performed by a qualified technician only". It also involves "cutting the carpet under the seat. MB must be idiots. Why would they make replacing a battery such an arduous, complicated process?
$148.50 + tax for a dealer battery is an excellent price. The quote I got was $314.Agree with previous posts; not that difficult. The battery is heavy and a little unwieldy getting it down into the opening. I had no corrosion on my battery terminals. I paid $148.50 plus tax for my battery at the dealer. I gave them my old one and got a 10% discount for my Benz Club membership.
Yes. Its a 12V 1.2AH SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) battery exactly the same style as used in UPS for your computer.Is there such a thing as an accessory battery. 2011 ML350 gas?
