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

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
