    My 1997 E300 TD is overseas and I need to re-connect the battery when I pick it up. Adjustable wrenches are too big to fit the space. Anyone know the size of wrench needed. I think it may be 10mm but I'm not sure.
    If the connection is not properly tightened the damn alarm keeps going off.

    While you're at it ...

    I'd take a 13 too.

    My 1991300CE has 13 mm nuts on the battery terminals.

    You will need a socket to get on the securing plate though ?
