Hi after one problem after another i have decided to scrap my c180 major problem is i cannot get into the boot of the car as the battery has gone dead flat and the only key i got with the car is the 3 button type and i never got any blade keys with it my fault i know never mind. I sadly had to break the rear quarter window to get in hoping i could open the boot using the boot release but it is dead.Is there any way of hooking up jump leads in the engine bay to power up the battery to release the boot switch as the battery is in the boot along with all my tools:Oops:.
Thanks in advance
Jim

You have a plastic panel on the bulk head that comes off, there are 2 connections in there to join up a battery or charger and the boot will open

It looks like this, after you remove a large plastic cover at the passenger side bonnet hinge.
Yours may not be exactly the same as this one.
