Reaching Out....

Hi selling my 98 slk 230 Monday.

My gf has locked the only key in the boot.

Great.

RACQ got the door open.

Central locking switch on dash does not work hasnt for a while.

RACQ gave up.

No Locksmith in my town, please for the love of god offer me some solutions

Tell your girl friend she owes you big time and then enjoy the pay back. Hey, if it's not dinner and a movie, it's something else anyway. No matter how you look at it, it always costs something.

Remove the rear number plate, carefully drill a hole above the latch mechanism, and activate the latch that way. I remember someone doing that a few years ago.

I also remember on MBWorld over 10 years ago, someone had a similar problem, and they found the wires in the engine bay that caused the roof to open, powered them up , opened the boot lid, and retrieved their keys that way. There was a long involved thread on it, with plenty of pics & diagrams.

The roof hack seems a bit out of my league dont understand some parts of it like hitting the pin in and grounding 54 but might be able to work it out when looking. If roadsite assist cant open it then thats my last option ill have to put it on a truck 200kms to the dealer and get them to fix it.. And call this buyer T_T pray for me guys
