Hi all,

I know this is a dumb question, but can someone give me some idea on how to replace the battery on my 220 CDI ?

I have disconnected the terminals, and tried to lift it out but the battery just will not come out. Is it held in really tight

regards
Ian

Look along the base edges of the long end of the battery. The end closest to the back of the car should have a little metal plate held down by a bolt. Unscrew the bolt and the plate should come off and allow you to remove the battery. At least that is what is on my '99.

Doug,

thanks for the advice, it worked great and I have now managed to fit the new battery

A folllow on question that you may be able to advise on : the car has been left standing for approx 8 months without being used (hence the battery was dead), is there anything I should check out before driving it for the first time ?


regards
Ian
