Hi, I've somehow managed to break the button that attaches the divider that sits between the back seat and the boot. (the blind) It was stuck for quite some time, but I've now managed to get it free... Was trying to find a diagram so that i could put it back together, or at least see if I'm missing any parts. Is there a free info guide with diagrams somewhere that you could point me to? Thanks Kirsten

Round clips pullout. But they have to by pried out. Once you get them out a bit with a screw driver, use needle nose pliers and grab the shaft of them and twist them out the rest of the way. Be prepared to buy some though, as they do break.
try lubricating the lock with spray lubricant, let sit for awhile and then carefully work the key back and forth, don't force it as the key could break off. If it seized solid, you will have to replace the lock.
Hi Mike, I'm glad to help! This happens on various vehicles because right where you are talking about the wire flex back and forth until one or more break into. What you'll need to do is pull the rubber boot thats around the wiring back from the body side to expose the wiring. NOTE: If you can't find the break there then you'll need to pull the boot back from the door side and check the wiring. NOTE: Once you find the broken wire or wire's, here's how you fix them so they will not re-break. CAUTION: Do Not put them together right where the break is because they will re-break. Instead, take a long piece of wire and attach it to the door side wire, then run the wire through to the inde of the car on the body side wiring and attach there. THIS way its not flexing like it did before. What You Need: You'll need heat shrink wrap, you can get it at the auto store, You'll need solder "Rosin Core" You'll need a soldering gun to solder the wiring and you'll need a Heat Gun to melt the heat shrink to cover the exposed wiring the you soldered. Hope this help and have an awesome day Mike.
If the back seat folds down you can get in and take the cover off the boot lid and pull the levers to the lock and it will open. If the seats do not fold down you have to remove the back seats to get into the boot or just get a locksmith
Brake switch or the relay stuck closed try to tap the brake pedal several times quickly disconnect the connector at the brake switch ( it should be towards the top of the brake pedal, and reconnect it. and try the brake again most likely it is this switch that is bad
Rocking tells me that something in the mechanism is broken. failure to move with switch could mean that either what broke or something else has jammed the track. If you are good at this kind of thing, remove seat (4 bolts & unplug harness) and flip it over if you can't see anything installed. It could have broken because it was ready to break but that's why I don't loan my stuff to anyone! (when something breaks then it's my fault) If parts turn out to be really expensive, you can likely find a working seat in a junkyard for pretty cheap. good luck with it...hope its something small & easy!
The gear assembly attached to the motor is stripped/broken. The least expensive solution is to go the junk yard and buy a motorized seat for your model. If you go the dealer for the motor assembly it is sold as a complete assembly with the bottom seat frame. Cost is over $300 . Once you've replaced/repaired the seat, I'd recommend that you do not raise or lower the seat while sitting on it. I had to replace mine twice.
I have a e320 2003 model, the same has happened to me. I wondered if it could be the fuse but couldn't find a fuse that managed the boot.....
This problem is identical to the other post "boot wont open electronicaly by the boot release latch above the number plate, the boot release button inside thecaror the key fob! I have to use the manual key to mechanically open it now."
Hi GB52. Just done this myself, should take 15 minutes perside max. 1/ remove rear seat cushion by bumping the centre back and up, lower the back rests down. 2/ Unscrew the striker plate from the seat side bolster and the bolt at the lower edge of the bolster Removing the bolster takes a bit of fiddling. 3/ use a flat-head screwdriver to release the strut spring clips - use the new ones as a guide. 4/ remove the old strut and fit the new one. reinstall the bolster, bolt and strike plate. note; when replacing the rear seat cushion, ensure the seat belts are fed through first and check that the seat retaining clips properly engage the floor panel brackets.
