I brought the car to MBZ for service and they replaced the trunk lock mechanism for $562.

Unhappy dirtdobber

I am having a very similar problem with my 03 sl500. I can't unlock the trunk even with the skeleton key. I can hear the unlock mechanism at work,but it does not completely release the lid, therefore I am locked out and thus can't put the top down either. Somebody HELP!!!!!!

Mr

'04 SL500, had to replace assist pump and trunk shocks, as the old shocks wouldnt hold the trunk lid up enought to not relock before i could walk back and open the trunk lid.
