Post 1999 - 2000 clk 230 convertable 'Problems'

Hi All ,

Afternoon / good morning

I Bought a lovely CLK 230 Komp Conv (2000 plate)

I soon found out why it was well priced ,
I love the car and want to put it right ,
I'm going to need alot of help ,

Not all but most mornings i find that either my driverside or passanger side windows do not work ,if i do not dissconect the battery to reset this fault then the following day neither of the windows work .........????? i read on hear some similar faults which seemed to point to the relay in the boot ,

The last time i reconnected the battery there was quite alot of arching , i thought nothing of it untill this morning when i decided to locate , remove & replace the relay , ......... great idea i thought .......

I now have another problem

Currently i cannot access the boot , the key fob , the center console button do not release the lid , the metal key fits in nicely but doesn't unlock either ,
is there another way ?

Any /All help very much appreciated

I Managed to get into the boot by drilling a hole behind the numberplate and manually releasing the lock ......

Now i need to no where the multifunctional relay is as the one near the fuse box doesn't seem to be a relay it looks more like a resistor ....... any ideas as my windows are still failing ......
