Trailer Hitch Removal
I have just bought a 2001 E320 Estate. My first MB and very impressive.
It has a removable trailer hitch, but I can't remove it. The previous owner (an old guy) said it was Factory-Fitted but had never removed it and did not recollect there being a key.
My local MB dealer were less than helpful, first saying that they had only ever seen one trailer hitch before and could not remember anything about them, then saying that I would need a key (but they couldn't remember what one looked like) and that without one I would need to have it drilled out - which would obviously ruin it.
Does anyone have any experience of perhaps getting MB to supply a duplicate key, or of getting a locksmith to unlock the hitch. Even knowing what the key looks like would help as I would then be able to search the car or ask the previous owner.
