RE: My 1977 280SE doors will not Open!
did both quit at the same time? unlikely! slim-jim won't work but this will get you in. buy a quality ice scraper and a good wire coat hanger. Bend coathanger in a shape that will allow it to grab a door lock post. some mechanical ability required[:0]. at rear door on passenger side, insert icescraper between top of door and roof, pry door out until hanger can be inserted and attached to door-lock knob, pull up and unlock door. if door is distorted during pry-job, bend back as needed, no damage done, you will not break the glass, damge the paint or your ego.
