MIKEMDD - I hope you replaced the battery with a sealed maintenance free battery like the original as this battery location is not designed for routine maintenance like a conventional flooded battery.[/QUOTE]

Yes, maintenance free. The battery terminology is very confusing for sure. In addition, all have different charging characteristics....bulk charging, absorption, float, etc. It's a wonder anything works as it should with regards to maintenance and charging.

Figured I just run down to the local auto store to buy a replacement chassis battery when mine failed. But after reading this thread I guess its not going to be that easy. I cannot find a US (or Canada) dealer for Varta. 'Mr Parts' site showed one for 80,000.00 (discounted from 84,000.00). I hope that is not in $. Where have others bought a replacement - other than a MB dealer?
