With the car jacked up and placed on jack stands, remove the tires. Note the angle of the shock going up into the body of the car. This will let you know whether it is in the trunk area or in the back seat area. More than likely, its in the the trunk.

Shocks were an appropriate step. There must be something else going on with the rear suspension. Sway bar links or bushes would be the next thing to check. Good luck and let us know what you find via comment to your question.

hi you need to remove back seat and maybe the back seatbelt brackets on each side as they can get in the way then you can get to the 3bolts that hold the top of each shock in with a small socket or angled spanner

How replace the rear shocks on mercedes 420 sel

You will need to remove the rear seats to access the hole just above the shock. Remove the bottom seat cushion first, then find the small bolts that hold the upper seat to the frame. Once removed, you will see access to the top of the shocks (might have a plastic covering the hole).
