lost key?

Have a 350 CLK, 2007.

As you know, this is a fat key that contains some sort of security device (I think infrared) .

Have a back up key but do not carry it with me.

Question, What do you do if you lose your key when far away from home?

hi, all you can do is order a replacement from the local retailer which should take 2-3 days to arrive. nothing else you can do unfortunately.

My mechanic was able to order an extra valet key for 35 dollars. Only the Dealer can replace the smart key however.

Always take 2nd key on your vacations.
In few cars I hide the blade accessible from the outside and ignition knob gets hidden inside. If not, at least spouse has 2nd key.
MB change the key policy almost every year, so you have to check with dealer.
Suppose the no-remote smart keys are no longer available.
Remote knobs sell in $160 -400 range and some dealers want the car in the shop for handling the key.
