This post #20, from today, shows yet another way to route the vent tube when retrofitting the Duralast 49-DL into the BMW E39:
- E39 (1997 - 2003) > Battery Voltage
  • Pleiades' way (up over the top & then under the positive battery cover)
  • QSilver7's way (cut 1/4" off the vent tube extension elbow)
  • Monkeyking's way (up over the top and into the cell-cap groove)
