OK Its a 202 C Class if the boot opening switch is on the centre console. Have you tried the blade properly? There is a set angle the key need to be in before pressing the button in to open the boot lid.

Thank you for your reply.
If the "blade" is the slimline key which fits into the side of the main remote control then yes we have tried that however, we didnt know there was a Knack to the way to use it.

I have just now tried opening the boot on my own 202 and I havnt managed to open it either. ( it does work with remote control and console button)

Any idea what I am doing wrong.

Tks

The key is inserted at the 12 o’clock (vertically) position and should turn to the 10 o’clock position to unlock and when turned to the 2 o’clock position, to lock.

It may be, that in both cases the locks are seized due to not being used as the remote fob is always used to lock/ unlock.

Get some penetrating oil and insert the aerosol straw into the lock and flood it several times in an hour and work the key in the lock occasionally.
