German term or phrase: Vliesbatterie, Seitenwellen
Two more automotive terms from my "laundry list" are

"Batterie 62Ah/62Ah/74Ah Vliesbatterie"

and

"HA Wellen / Seitenwellen"
where HA = Hinterachse

I appreciate any help anyone can give me!

Drive shaft


Explanation:
HA Welle, also known as a Kardanwelle, known here as a prop(ulsion) shaft. Seitenwellen, twin shafts driving right and left wheels on a front-wheel drive car, usually known simply as drive shafts. Since each drives only one wheel, only together do they provide propulsion.

No idea re battery. Vlies can only mean fleece, as far as I can see.

felt


Explanation:
For whatever its worth, the Bosch auto manual mentions a "Vliesauflage" (translated as "felt layer") in the discussion of a Zyklenfeste Batterie (Deep-cycle battery. (page 804)

Deep-cycle batteries featuring pocket separators and felt layers have an even longer service life.

Die zyklenfeste Starterbatterie mit Taschenseparatoren und Vliesauflage hat eine noch höhere Gebrauchsdauer.
