Default Mercedes Trunk Actuator (Lock) Replacement DIY

Your trunk lock is designed to fail... When it does you need to see how to replace it.

I did mine and recorded it: check it out and have fun changing yours yourself.

The first aid box can be removed and a long stiff wire used to remove the lock cover and slide the latch to the unlocked position.

In extreme cases, a taillight can be knocked out and you can reach in to do the same by hand.
