How to replace battery on SL500
Hi Harry, the battery is in the right rear corner of the trunk on your car. You'll need to remove the hold down. Disconnect thenegative cable first and then the positive. When installing, connect the positive cable first and then the negative. Let me know if you need more help.

How can I remove the cover to get to the battery?

The cover or door just opens up and then you should be able to just lift it out of the way.


The cover has a little thumbscrew at the top that you turn to release and the bottom of the cover should just fit into a slot. The whole thing removes out of the way.
