That’s the way in alright as you say it will work on most models.
My curiosity was about the way in which you may have operated the key blade in the lock, did you turn the key to the left to about the 10 o’clock position and did you then push it inwards?

If the key is turning to the left then it should unlock, there is a guide here if you need to investigate further…W202 Boot Lock Fix. - Mercedes-Benz Owners' Forums




The above is for a car that has a 2 button remote, that is, a non- electric boot lock, if you have a 3 button remote then your boot lock will operate in a slightly different way.

It’s wise to have the boor lock in working order, if the vacuum system or the remote ever fails then you won’t gain entry so easy as before.
