HELP! need to get into mercedes e class boot


Asked by Oct 24, 2013 at 04:51 PM about the 2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Boot lock broke when out shopping, put back seats down and crawled into boot to temp
secure boot shut using metal clip. In morning, on auto pilot, and being stupid, I put rear
seats back boot locked from inside, can't lower rear seats again as release is in
the boot :-(

1 Answer


Try the button to release the lock and have someone pull up on the lid . If that don't work there should be a button that looks like a door lock pull around the top of the seat around the head rest. Try either push it down or pull up on the button and the seat back should release if that don't work you'll have to take the back seat out the old fashioned way. Just remember to take the seat bottom out first and check at the bottom of the seat back there are bolts there also.
