    Hi all , newbie on here , so first post , hope someone might be able to help , the battery has gone flat on my 230 clk cabrio , and when i went to open the boot with the key i found that at some point the boot lock has been changed , so the key doesn't fit , so my question is , is there a charge point for the the battery under the bonnet anywhere , or can the boot be opened by any other method ?
    Thanks in advance ,
    Bruce .

    Your lock is likely seized due to infrequent use, very common problem.
    Will the key fully enter the lock key hole?

    Try some WD40 or Penetrating oil.
