Need to unlock my car via boot

Hi all,

Well through a series of events, my one and only key no longer works to remote unlock and there is something in the lock so I cant use the blade.
However, I can open the boot and I understand that I can blow into some pump to unlock the doors, does someone have any pictures of where exactly this hose is I need to blow in to ?
Thanks

Thes locks operate on compressed air. The piece your looking for is called PSE (Pneumatische Steuer Einheit, which is German for Pneumatic Control Unit). Do a Google search with PSE and you will find more info. Where its located and how it can be removed you'll find her PSE - Removal, Refit and Check - Mercedes-Benz Forum .
Don't have a R170 myself so have no experience with the trick. but as you can guess the trick is to put pressure on the tube to the door lock, either by blowing into it or power up the PSE.
Good luck!

Found it, amazed how relatively easy it is to break into the car, one small blow and it is open.
Thanks
