Hello

if you can start removing the panels as shown in this guide, you can then access the boot area

http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Mercedes-SLK230/07-BODY-Trunk_Panel_Removal/07-BODY-Trunk_Panel_Removal.htm

if this doesn't help then you can try shorting pins as shown on this guide

about 2/3 of the way down....good pics of the CCM and how to locate and tap the various pins

http://mai.smartneighborhood.net/slkmods/bvrc/bvrcinst.shtml

to ground to try and get the roof to start to open so you can hopefully reach in through the gap to remove the bag
