Customer Question

I have a MB 200E year 1990. I ran out of petrol completely, and as I cannot start the engine, thee is no vacum for the operation of the central locking system. Thus I cannot open the flap covering the tankover and cannot get the petrol into the tank. Also the bagage lid will not open - not even with the key directly in its lock. Any ideas, please?

the central locking runs off of an electric pump, not engine vacuum, if you have the mechanical key you turn it in the trunk lock to the left to 11 oclock and then press the button in to manually pop the trunk. have you tried this.?
