2012 ML 350 Bluetec Battery Location

Ok, like the title says, where did they hide it on this model. No mention of it in the owners manual.

Thanks

The battery is located below the passenger side front seat. It is best to remove the seat to install a new battery. Be prepared to cut the carpet that is below the seat. Recommend you buy the highest quality battery possible so to not need to repeat this chore often.

Ok, so I moved the passenger side front seat all the way forward, and under the back side of the seat is the heat vent for the rear passenger. Moved the seat all the way rearward and there is a computer module that takes up all the space and has about 6 connectors coming out of it. How in the bloody hell do you access the battery, do you remove the heat vent, the computer module, the entire damn seat, or all of the above.......and if so, how do you remove the seat......unbolt it from the floor or is there an easier way.

The complete seat needs to be removed. You will see perforations where the carpet needs to be cut. I bought a new Interstate battery for my 2012 ML 350 and they installed it for $100 which I was glad to pay.

If I remember correctly the seat is bolted to the floor. I am not certain if there is a requirement to maintain a battery connection while your old battery is removed in order to insure that memory codes are kept.

I have posted your question about the battery replacement on the Mercedes Benz Club of America website. Hopefully someone can provide specific details.

Perfect depiction of battery removal, do not remove the seat
