SOURCE: My trunk release button on my Mercedes Benz C230

I have the same intermittent problem on my C230 in that the trunk lid switch will not open the trunk lid from inside. If you pull it the least bit hard, the little plastic switch button breaks off and you have to replace the whole unit. Mine has been replaced twice and five months later it is now happening again. One of the tech's at Mercedes happen to say in passing that the contacts may have a problem in the hot weather and it was acting up during several heat spells. Problem is the assembly is $742.00 installed each time and Mercedes says they only warranty the replacement from the date of the original installation instead of a new warranty on the new part. I am currently fighting Mercedes of America over this as they seem to have a problem with the switch and will not admit it. Everything is so expensive on a Mercedes.

Where is the trunk release


If you mean Remote trunk release, there isn't one. It's controlled by vacuum. If system works good, when you unlock the doors with the key or the inside door switch, it will unlock the trunk (if the button is in the unlock position). And vice versa.

Convertible top wont open where is the microswitch located so that i can test it


It's located on the lower left of the frame as you are standing facing the trunk - drivers side. You can see how the partition is supposed to press on it. Press it with your finger and listen for an audible click. Tape it in the closed position to "fool" the car and see if the top works. It may be bad, broken, or just out of position. Or your partition my need some adjustment and is not pressing the switch properly.

The Convertible top of Mercedes-Benz 2005 CLK 320 won't open or close.


If the "black part" you are talking about is the "trunk partition"(which should come up as a "fault" on the dash when you try and cycle the top) then there are several things to check. The partition itself should snap into the retracted position(forward), and back. If it doesn't there are two struts(also called air springs) that have lost their charge and are not holding the partition in place. It has to be held solidly in place to set the switch on the left side(driver side) in order for the top to go down. If it's at all floppy, it won't set that switch and the top won't cycle. I've found the hard way this is a common problem.

Electric windows are fine the roof gets half way


If the top is half way down that means that the trunk is open and should be touching the trunk switch to continue the process. The switch must be bad and it is inside the rear right fender close the the stop light

Lowered the concertible top on my 2003 mercedes clk 430 (just purchased) without a problem. while raising the rear would not lock, so i locked it manually, however the trunk would not open neither manually...


make sure that you have the holder for the top in the trunk in position correctly and that the 'nubs' on each side of the plastic have triggered the switch on the right side when in position

Mercedes-Benz 230clk coupe 1998 with dead battery


I had same problem with my 2002 CLK430. Dead battery with car locked. You can't open doors with the mechanical key (inside remote key), as windows need power to slide down slightly to allow clearance, so you can't access the hood release. The answer is to insert the mechanical key in the key hole for the trunk (boot). It will only go in one way, with the slightly larger grip part down. I found it easiest to turn with a pair of flat nosed pliers. Turn counterclockwise to the left to to the 11 o'clock position. Then push the release in and the trunk will open. Battery is located in the right rear quarter under the flooring panel that also covers spare tire. Hook up charger or jumper cables and power will come back on, as will alarm. To disable, just push the unlock button on the remote key. You should be good to go from here!
