Keyless entry and window tint problem

Hey everyone! I just purchased a 2008 CLK 350 recently. Everything is working fine and the car is warrantied to almost 100k. My wife and I decided to get the windows tinted and got it done. The car looks perfect. My wife took the car out the same night and I get a call from her saying that the keyless entry is not working. So when she came home I checked it out. The IR is working fine, but the RF is not. I saw a couple of threads about metallic tint that causes interference. I checked with the tint ppl to see if that was the case.. They told me they used QDF (non-metallic). So I brought it back to them to take out the rear tint to see if that was that was the cause of the keyless not working. When they took it out, the RF was still not working.. So the owner of the shop brought it to his MB specialist to have it checked out. He said that the MB specialist need to look at it more. The MB guy said that the antenna is not on the rear glass, which is not what the dealership told me. He said the antenna is located inside where the sunroof is... I'm not sure who is right or wrong, but can someone tell me where the antenna for the RF is? The tint guy is willing to pay for the damages if the tint caused this.. I have a week till the appt. for diagnostic..
