Keys in ignition, windows up, locked out. Spare key no use.

Hey guys. Today's not my day. I put my keys into the ignition and thought my doors were unlocked, so I put my windows up from outside of the car. Now I'm locked out and the spare key does nothing because the key is in the ignition. What can I do? Call roadside assistance?

Do you have the blade key in the spare? If so use it to pop the driver's side door.

Otherwise, call MB roadside.

Yeah, use the blade key to unlock the driver's door. You are having a bad day, eh?

If your key was in the ignition, how did you get the windows up from the outside??? I'm sorry it's a bad day, but the blade key should do it! Sounds like a bad day, but could definitely be worse... you still have your car.

Should be impossible unless you spin the LHS front wheel & invoke the auto lock!

Roadside assistance can do nothing for my car, they say. The blade unlock worked though! Things are getting better. Getting that misfire issue taken care of today, headliner is getting installed soon, and all that'd be left to do is re-glue my sliding wood-trim to its fabric base and replace the windshield wiper pumps. 2002 ftw!

The only FTW W203s were the AMG cars of all years and the facelifts. Sorry.

Glad you got your issues worked out.

For US cars maybe but not SA cars. In 6.5 years my car has had 2 X castor bushes & 1 X transmission plug 5 cent washer. Oh! and yesterday - one brake light globe went pop - not too bad. Better than your facelift.

Of course it's had service items like, filters, brake pads & tyres.

Matt is too much in love with the facelift M271. I bet he is like those school girls who have posters of guy bands on their wall. Instead Matt has posters of the facelife M271 allover his wall. He probably has a poster of the m271 engine and that turns him on

Anyone got an R&R on a PRE FACELIFT RHS stop lamp globe replacement. I'm new to this sort of extensive maintenance

Heaven knows what I would do if I suffered a rear transmission mount failure!

I see you still haven't installed WIS

What is that exactly? The light on the trunk?

Nah, nothing to do with the engine. I just like the facelift cars best. It's the only way the very old design is still modern.

And Karo, even if I did have the posters.. better the facelift W203 than Patrick nude.

Not Patrick nude, I paid some graphic designer guy and he photoshopped your head on a ChipNDales guy

Karo - I was just teasing Matt - It's in the owners manual. I just need to pop in a new stop lamp - Open trunk, Pull back trim, twist *** & take out bulb holder on RHS

He's has to change a lot more on his car than I have.

My two favourite teams have won their opening matches. Korea & Japan!!!!!!

Hey I've changed filters and a couple of burned out bulbs in my 2005 since warranty ran out. That's it. It needs some freshening as far as bushings and such in the suspension, but that's to be expected after 83500 miles. Anything else it had done (from the tranny mount to the fuel filler neck) was all under warranty. And my car has the equivalent of 134,400km. I'd say that makes it significantly more "aged" than your car in hours of usage.

Well, Glyn still wins in this case.. your car is a facelift, and therefore is revised to last longer. His car, having the same amount of problems, if not fewer, is doing better because it was not even facelifted and still puts up a fight with your facelift vehicle.

Just sayin.

Glyn and I are just teasing one another. Glyn has a late 2003 car.. lots of the bugs were worked out by then. It's really the 2001-2002 cars that are known disasters.

Not to offend anyone, but I'd have to agree on some level. We used to have a 2001 C240 and it made me swear to never own a C-class. Only after falling in love with my grandpa's (now my) C230 did I change my mind. I'm not saying that it isn't a good car, I would still choose it over plenty of cars, it just didn't compare to the CLK we had at the time, whereas my C now does.




Still, I miss my CLK!

I almost got reamed pulling out onto the street when my cylinder misfired twice more. Gotta love 2002.
