Yeah, the webpage from Ct M/B of Fairfield (CT):

here: 453-982-00-08 - Battery 2017-2019 Smart | Mercedes-Benz USA Parts
$102.99
BUT it is for a 453-982-00-08 battery, which I believe is for the ICE smarts. Even though it has it listed as:
  • 453-982-00-08
  • Other Names:Starter Battery
  • Description: Conventional, with electric drive. (italics mine)

But my battery in my 2017 ED/EQ smart is:
12V - L2 EFB 60aH 510A
Enhanced Flooded Battery special technology
DC A 453-982-02-00
2440 5613R

(see my battery pics in "Just towed my new smart eq away")

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK I just called the M/B parts dept. The online catalog listing p/n 453 982-00-08 as being for ED/EQ smarts is WRONG,
That battery listed is, in fact, for the 453 ICE smarts only. These online catalogs are to be questioned.

According to the parts dept guy, if I were to buy the correct (p/n 453-982-02-00) battery from M/B of Fairfield (CT),
It would cost $194.84 (tax included).
(Whoops, $102.99 is NOT for me!):mad:

Just looked further in the online catalog:
  • Genuine:
     Parts
  • SKU:453-982-02-00
  • Other Names:Starter Battery
  • Description:
    Conventional, without electric drive. <----------!!!(italics mine)
  • Condition:New
  • Replaces:453-982-02-08
  • HazMat:This part contains hazardous materials. Extra shipping costs apply.
This is sold online for $137.99.


BUT page Also states

  • List Price:$182.00 (the price the parts guy gave me)
  • You Save:$44.01 (24.20% off)
  • Sale Price:$137.99
"This part does not fit your 2017 Smart Fortwo"

So either the online catalog or the M/B dearlership parts guy is wrong! 🤷‍♂️
(pardon me but WTF?)

Yup but all the parts guy did was ask for the last 8 digits of my vin, then read me the battery I needed. So his battery for the ED (453-982-02-00) was the online battery for the gas smart, and the online ED (453-982-00-08) was for what he sold for gas smarts. At least the online site for 451's, either gas or ED is the same battery (the 451-982-00-08). When I bought my car, carfax history showed the dealer (a NJ dealer) replaced the battery. I'm wondering if they put the wrong one in. Or maybe it just doesn't matter. A clue would be what other people with 453's have., in both gas and ED smarts.

I put in a query on the online catalog webpage and finally got a reply:
"


According to our parts catalog, battery P/N 453-982-00-08 is no longer a valid number. In reference to our catalog P/N 453-982-02-00 is the only battery the vehicle takes based on your VIN. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact our parts department. Thank you.
