Check the fluid level Note

The battery must always be disconnected from the vehicle wiring before starting any work on the electric system, to prevent possible short circuits. The battery must not, however, be disconnected when the engine is running.

1. Open the front hood.

2. Remove covers.

3. Undo the ground terminal and pull off. Note

The system adaption in the DEE control unit is lost when the battery is disconnected. The system must therefore be adapted using the System Tester 9288 after the check has been completed.

Check the fluid level

1. Check the fluid level in each cell.

2. If the fluid level has fallen below the minimum level marking, top up to the maximum level marking with distilled water.


If the acid level is too low, this will reduce the capacity of the battery and shorten its service life.
