Well, I would try and go thru the backseat too if I could figure out how to get the seat back out. I removed the seat bottom where the battery is and removed the two bolts at either bottom corner but the seat back does not come off without some special moves. What are those special moves?

southo, I will try the pulling up on the switch remains as soon as it gets later in the morning. I work out of town all week long and I'm in Pearsall, Texas where there is NOTHING! I stay in a Best Western and that alarm is incredibly LOUD!

On the E 300 there is a middle bolt as well if I recall properly, then you need to push the backrest upward, to the ceilling and it come off.

Trunk open and all is well


For what it's worth, on my 2002 E320 sedan the procedure for getting into the trunk when the electronic key was left inside the trunk is this: have someone disconnect the negative battery cable under the seat for 60 seconds while you sit in the driver seat and immediately upon the re-connection of the cable press the top (lock) portion of the central locking button above the climate control and at the same time have the person who did the battery cable for you, run around to trunk and press the lock cylinder inward and trunk will open!!!

those of you who are considering accessing the boot through the rear seat
will come face-to-face with the fuel tank, which is the size of a baby crib
mattress oriented vertically and parallel with the seat back.

That is how Mercedes open the trunk on my 190E. They had a small electric motor, disconnected the vacuum pipe to the trunk at the PSE, connected it to the motor and opened the trunk that way.

I locked my keys in my trunk while loading groceries. I had a lockout service open the driver's door only to find that there was no way of getting the trunk open; the trunk opening lever near the gear shift does not work if the car is not unlocked using the electronic key. More frustration to realize there is no way to get to the trunk through the back seat. Finally I called a friend to go to my home and get my other key and bring it out to me, 80 miles away.
I love this car, but this would never have been a problem with my Honda, which has a fold down rear seat and the trunk opening lever works no matter how you open the car.
Hopefully this never happens to anyone else, but it was so aggravating, I had to rant about it.

You are right, that never would happen with Honda.
That is why I consider MB trunk the safest place during my vacations. Always put extra CC and computers there. Better than hotel room safe.

I hope valet parking is still safe. The above probably won't work when the trunk lock is in valet mode.
