c240 petrol release locked

Hi guys,

I wonder if anyone can help. My petrol lid is stuck and wont unlock. It's a MB C240 Elegance (w203). The key fob wont work due to an earlier problem but i need to get the petrol release open so that i can fill up and take it to the garage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If the central locking has locked all the doors & the boot, the filler flap will also be locked. But you can get into the car & boot using the emergency (mechanical ) key on your fob.

To get to the rear of the filler flap, remove the side trim panel in the boot.

I'm not sure about your C240, but on my 2004 CLK 240, (W209 has very similar body parts) the Owner's Manual describes an emergency release button/handle for this flap in the boot, behind the right side trim.

Turn this clock-wise, and a locked flap is released. Hopefully you have this feature on a W203.
