Waiting to put the new battery in the Mercedes 300D Turbodiesel

Posted By on December 20, 2018

Who knew something as simple as ordering an Mann air filter ordered from Amazon would delay getting the Mercedes Benz 300D Turbodiesel back on the road?


I order a new battery “online” with free delivery since it was $20 cheaper than picking it up at the auto parts store (crazy!) and figured since I had to take the air cleaner parts off in order to replace the battery, I might as well order a new filter from Amazon assuming it would be here before a very heavy battery. Nope … battery is here, but the Mercedes is just sitting waiting to be buttoned back up. (Interesting, I still had to take the core back to the store to get my $22 core charge back … would make more sense to just have me pick up the battery at the store???)
