Question about 2000 Mercedes-Benz CLK
No, you dont need to break windows. use the mechanical key that is slotted in the end of the normal electronic gizmo key to open the drivers door. It doesn't work on the boot lid even though it should so you need to energise the electric boot release from unde rthe bonnet as described elsewhere in this solution.

Boot wont open battery flat..........remedy........open bonnet, on passenger side, by the suspension strut is a square box, lift the cover, underneath, you will see some terminals. Connect jump lead red to terminal, jump lead black to earth on car. Car with good battery to jump off, do not start, but connect leads in conventional way, this should allow enough power to open boot on remote, providing the interior lights come on to show power going in. If this does not work, check connections.. Do not attempt to start car on key or you will cause serious wiring damage, this is just to be used to power boot release. Once boot opened, sort it in normal way.
On newer cars the black box with connectors has a red cross to show power point.
If car is locked, then you will have to break a window to gain access to bonnet release, unless someone else knows of another way.
Luckily, the car was left unlocked.
Hope this helps.
Please note that this is a 1998 NOT a 2000.
