    I know what you mean. I have had my current car for ten years and only a couple of weeks ago I found this weird and amazing thing in the glovebox.

    It was some sort of book and on the front cover it said "E Class Owner Handbook". It's amazing: all the hidden stuff in these cars, though I haven't yet figured out what the book does.

    OMG! I decided to read that book!!!

    My car - and I can hardly believe this - it moves! I stuck this little black thing in a hole in the dashboard like the book told me to and then a big noise started up and then I moved a stick-like thing that the Owner Handbook said I should and the car moved! Of it's own accord.

    Ten years of walking everywhere and all along I had a moving car. Nobody told me it moved as well as looking nice!!!

    (Sorry, I have been down the pub all night).

    No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.

    Seriously, its well documented both in the manual and on here. Virtually all mercs that have central locking remotes have done this, my 1996 CL did it....

    The OP chose to post a light hearted thread on something that he hadn't discovered until recently. I'm a little shocked at the band of smart ar$es that seem happy to denigrate him. :(

    I'm with you skyline pete. I didn't know I could do that until a couple of weeks ago and I've had my current car for nearly 12 months!

    A pity it doesn't work from a decent range, you have to be quite close to the drivers door to do activate the open/close window feature.

    Also worth checking on YouTube if like me, you can't be bothered to flick through the entire manual. Just search for your car model!
