How many owners have used their Emergency Key blade on the W169 and other models :doh:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just as a point of interest how many owners have bothered to use the emergency key blade installed in the key fob on the w169 A class and other models ?

If you have not then I suggest you give it a try, yes all the details as to how to get into your car are in the handbook BUT where is the handbook ? locked in the car!

I have just put a short video on my web site that may help you. Oh and make sure the wife can get in as well, might save you a journey to the supermarket car park.

I have also added a page 33 in the w169 section of the site heater/blower problems with the help of Warick in Australia.

Do it regularly to ensure door locks haven't seized up.
 
Not watched your video, but I have used my skeleton key in both the drivers lock and the boot one, mainly to make sure that they do work in the unlikely event that I would ever need them.

Before I used the key, I also gave it a light spray with a liquid grease (used for chains on machinery) as a little bit of lubrication for the locks. I figured "why not". Hopefully never have to go that way, but if I do, at least I stand a fighting chance now as I know that they will turn. :D
 
I read through the instructions for opening, and suspect they are the same for mine.
What baffles me is the instructions for locking. I cannot open back door, and reach through to press button down, as only have 2 doors (CLK).
Does this mean only option is climb through boot, and under rear parcel shelf? and will this work?

Managed to shut my boot recently after I had disconnected battery. Only way to rescue the situation was by using the blade on the bootlid.
 
I confess to never using the blade , so used to the keyless system ,,,, also I usually have new after 4/5,years so I've never found the need to do it , ,,,

I so want to try this to be sure it works but if it doesn't I'm stuffed because I tried it!
 
Used the blade only the other day, perfect to release the catch and change the batteries in the fob :D
