What's the model number for a axillary battery for 2003 e320

My local shop wanted $195 to replace the auxiliary battery on my 2005 E500. This is so easy I plan on doing it myself.

Thanks for a detailed description but My car's auxiliary battery is not in the specified location under the air filter. Where else can I check for it. It's a 2006 E350 4matic made in Australia as stated on the car
