Why Is My Car Battery Leaking?

Car Battery

Maintaining the battery of your Mercedes-Benz is essential to the overall health and longevity of your vehicle, and corrosion on the terminals isn’t the only thing you need to look out for. If you ever notice a leak or damage to your battery, take action immediately, or it could turn into a big problem later while you’re out driving around Beachwood. Mercedes-Benz of Bedford is at your service. Read on to learn possible reasons why your battery is leaking, and then bring it to our Bedford service department.

What Causes Car Battery Leaking?

Have you noticed fluid of a dark, oily color pooling beneath your vehicle? There are several things that can lead to car battery leaking. Collisions and excessive battery wear are only two of the most common causes. Regardless of the reason, there are several telltale signs of a damaged battery that needs to be replaced:

  • The battery appears damaged
  • You can see a crack in the battery
  • The cell caps aren’t sealed properly
  • The battery is warped or dented

If you notice any of these signs in your Mercedes-Benz battery, be careful not to touch it. Instead, head into Mercedes-Benz of Bedford, near Mayfield, and let our experienced service technicians handle it. Remember, a car battery leaking acid can be dangerous. Don’t leave any spills or leaks for someone else to find.

If you’re not sure what kind of fluid is leaking beneath your vehicle, check the color and give us a call! It may be transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolant, or something else entirely.

How To Dispose of a Damaged Battery

The crucial thing to know when dealing with car battery leaking, that you should never touch the fluid or the battery itself! Battery fluid is typically highly acidic, and it can be dangerous if not dealt with correctly. Generally, if you contact our parts department or the last place where you had your battery replaced, they will likely dispose of it for you. If they won’t do that, contact your local recycling center.
