Mercedes Benz CLK 430 year 2002 Problem:3 to 4 months ago my trunk lid would not stay open, MB dealership repaired the spring of the trunk and fixed. Today when trunk lid is unlock with remote or manual, it slams opens faster that it use to be. So fast that it looks like it will hit the rear windshield. Can you please give advice on how to fix this. My dealership is clueless & helpless.

The springs should have viscous fluid in them that prevents opening fast. Replace again.

SOURCE: 1998 s500 mercedes benz trunk will not open

Try the fuse first. If you have done this than the problem could be in the actuator on the trunk latch. Poss loose/bad wire or faulty unit? I hope this helps!

SOURCE: my mercedes clk battery dead i cant open trunk

On the side of the smart key there is a mechanical key that slides out of one of the sides-There should be a little release lever retaining the mechanical key. It can be inserted into the trunk lock and turned to open the trunk. There are several other positions the key can be turned to place the trunk lock actuation in different modes- it should be in your owner's manual Hopefully I have been helpful

SOURCE: i need the mercedes benz 1999 clk 430 radio code

AR82.60-P-7502-01A Coding Radio
(MODEL all with CODE (750) Radio Becker Europa 2000 with CODE (751) Radio Becker Grand Prix 2000 with RDS)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it is not operational when re-connected. After switching on the ignition and the radio, the readout CODE appears in the display.
  2. The code number for the radio is advised to you on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. To enter the first digit of the code number, you have to continue pressing station button 1 until the correct digit appears in the display. Adopt the same procedure for the second, third and fourth digits.
  4. Once you have entered the correct code number with the station buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and confirmed the entry with the SEEK button (press down), the readout CODE disappears. The radio can now be operated.
  5. If you enter a wrong code three times, you must wait 15 minutes before making a new entry. In addition, if 9 incorrect entries are made, the radio will then not operate for 24 hours. During this time the radio and the ignition (terminal 15) must remain switched on.
AR82.60-P-7502-01B Coding Radio
(MODEL all with CODE (353) Audio 30 APS with CODE (510a) Radio MB Exquisit with traffic news decoder, with RDS (Becker) with CODE (512a) Radio MB Special with traffic news decoder, with RDS.)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it cannot be operated by simply reconnecting. After switching on the ignition and the radio the word "CODE" appears in the display on the radio.
  2. The code number for the radio is given on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. Enter the code number with the station button, e.g. number 1, station button 1. After entering the first number the word "CODE" disappears and the number entered appears followed by 4 dashes. The next character to be entered flashes. After entering all five numbers, the first character starts flashing again. In this state the code number can be written over as frequently as desired. A correction can be made only by entering the complete code number again.
  4. Confirm code number: Press TUNE, AUTO/SEEK or SC button. The radio automatically switches on and indicates the radio station or frequency stored with station button 1.
  5. If an incorrect code number is entered and confirmed, the word "CODE" appears again on the display. If an incorrect code is entered three times the word "WAIT" appears on the display and the radio locks up for approx. 10 min. If the code is entered incorrectly three times again the radio locks up again for 10 min. Three more incorrect entries (a total of 9 incorrect attempts) increase the lock-up time to 60 min. Another three incorrect entries lock up the radio for another 60 min. The waiting time runs only when the radio is switched on.

SOURCE: My trunk release button on my Mercedes Benz C230

I have the same intermittent problem on my C230 in that the trunk lid switch will not open the trunk lid from inside. If you pull it the least bit hard, the little plastic switch button breaks off and you have to replace the whole unit. Mine has been replaced twice and five months later it is now happening again. One of the tech's at Mercedes happen to say in passing that the contacts may have a problem in the hot weather and it was acting up during several heat spells. Problem is the assembly is $742.00 installed each time and Mercedes says they only warranty the replacement from the date of the original installation instead of a new warranty on the new part. I am currently fighting Mercedes of America over this as they seem to have a problem with the switch and will not admit it. Everything is so expensive on a Mercedes.

How do I remove the lens to Change backup light 2001 clk 430 convertible


I believe you do not remove the lens - rather you open the trunk and find the back of the lamp (you'll have to remove the panel in front of it) and remove and change the bulbs from inside the trunk.

Ac blows hot air


I have had a similar problem quite a few years ago. You don't mention the model or year of your vehicle. It could be a relay that is on the firewall just below or behind the firewall in engine compartment in front of driver's side of the car. It took a really savvy MB mechanic an hour to locate and fix after 2 months in other shops, including an MB dealership. Mine was a 1988 560SEL that had that problem. After that was fixed, it worked perfectly for another 5 years - at which time I sold the car.
I hope this helps...

make sure that you have the holder for the top in the trunk in position correctly and that the 'nubs' on each side of the plastic have triggered the switch on the right side when in position

After I lock my 2001 clk 430 with the key remote the inetrior lights stay on and the exterior lights start flashing, what can I do to fix this?


Alarm system is detecting a fault. It could be a door latch sensor gone wrong, and it should show a door ajar light while driving, or the hood or trunk sensor disconnected. Most alarms are designed to "arm", even if it detects an open door.
