Customer Question
Trunk closed and latch...

Trunk closed and latch locked - tried several times to open by turning key to 10 o'clock position but no luck. Can it be opened with out removing rear seat?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

In park and car has wheel lock

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 Mercedes?

190e 1993

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 190E yourself? What have you tried so far?

Again, trunk locked and cannot open using 10 o'clock key position. Any other ideas or will I have to pull rear seat?

Exactly this: The top malfunctioned in mid position - would
The top malfunctioned in mid position - would not go up further. Then after repeatedly moving it up and down, the top closed but did not latch in position. The trunk lid is about 3" open. When trying to move it the last time, once the hydralics timed out, the trunk lid decended into its current position. It appears to be very rigidly locked there. It will not either go up or down - no movement at all. The control lights up but no movement in the roof or trunk lid. Thought the hydralics might have overheated and blown a fuse but do not have a clue where to look for the fuse. You can manually lift the top until it touches the trunk lid. Thanks. … read more
