97 C230 Remote Keyless Entry Fob Programming

I have a 1997 C230 that needs to have the remote keyless entry fob programmed. I have a new fob and key and was wondering if anyone here knew of an on-board procedure for programming the fob?

RE: 97 C230 Remote Keyless Entry Fob Programming

Is this the with-metal0-key fob, or the IR-tipped facelift fob?

There's a little dance you go through when you change the batteries on the later type (or get a new fob), which involves sitting in the car and locking/unlocking things while reading the manual backwards dressed in a kilt. Well, anyway, it's something like that; the spares people who sold you the fob should have detailed it to you - or yoru nearest main dealer will tell you.
