I have panel off on passenger side to jump o just don't know where to put positive cable
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 4 months ago

ok, see the big cable mounted to the top of the black box on the left?

its the big cable with the nut that is on the top of the box.

that is the battery cable from the battery, hook it there.

but make sure if you are using another car that it is NOT running.

if you know what im describing then good, if not let me know and I will send over a picture.
