how to unlock a mercedes without keys ?
My friend has a Mercedes 300se which was his grandfather car, his grandfather past away more then 5 years ago, since then the car never move or start, and he also dont know where the keys is, now he want to restore the car, how?

Anyone can suggest how to open the doors, and where to make new keys or replace the whole lockset, i tried calling spare part dealers all dont seem to carry lockset for the old car.

Need to tow the car to the shop, parking brake is on, need to open doors to release the parking brake and shift gearbox to Neutral, so towing would be possible

Re: how to unlock a mercedes without keys ?
Hi bro,

I was just thinking if there's no other way, the last resort is to break one of the windscreens (make sure you survey if can get part & standby a new one first).

How about the quarter glass at the rear windows? As long your hands could reach to open the door...
Thats the smallest glass & may be the cheapest to replace.(i think)..

But anyway there are locksmiths who should be able to make a duplicate. Try until you really can't find one, then consider the option or the pleasure of breaking glass....


Cheers...

Hi,

I'm pretty sure a cheaper alternative would be to get a locksmith to pick the lock - chances are the lock may get damaged but I'm sure you'd be able to source for a new set easily. All the best.

Re: how to unlock a mercedes without keys ?
Yeah a locksmith could do it or I'm sure the tow truck guys can do it too? It's not that difficult if you want to attempt it yourself. The method below is what I've used before but it does cause some cosmetic damage.
First, don't mess with the driver side door and instead try on the front passenger door.
To gain access, use a screwdriver to pry open SLIGHTLY the passenger door by sliding the screwdriver between the B pillar and front door. The damage you might do is some nicks on the B pillar and maybe tear at the rubber, weatherstripping. If you want, put some masking tape first along the B pillar to prevent scratches.

Then, I was going to say to take a straightened coat hanger and slide that in to press the unlock button but I realised the car may have a dead battery. If thats the case, you need to get something that can fit between the gap you just made and pull the door handle.

What year is the car anyway?

Well, I'm sure the locksmiths are better at picking locks than the car thieves themselves!

Call Mazlan 0192437007 n he is capable to open the door without breaking the glass and he is a mech too

bro

towing ur car to w/shop shouldn't be a problem.
all rear wheel drive auto should be towed from the back.
never tow it from the front as it may damage ur tranny regardless
whether its in Neutral coz the engine is not running
n the tranny pump is not running too.

regards

as`kum

Re: how to unlock a mercedes without keys ?
well lots of inputs, so il have to try one by one

1. last time i left my keys in the trunk of my w124 coupe and accidently closed it , the car autolocked and i had ony 1 key, i called a locksmith and he used a hangar like object tru the glass of passenger door , its quite tricky as these cars have vacuum pumps and the handle can be very hard to open, but while he was doin it i saw the door lock move a little, i quickly grab the handle and opened it, and it opened. But because he use a balloon like object to create a gap for the hangar to go in, my door trim is slightly curved (bengkok) now, it annoys me but i had no choice. this seems like the best option but i dont want to damage another door trim if can.

well the problem wont end there, once i open the door i still need to make new keys, so first il tow the car to a mechanic and get him to open the ignition , doors and trunk, and see if the locksmith can make another key based on the original lock. I check with one guy he said can but RM600, quite high price man. Ebay.com new lockset + keys for ignition only is rm100 , brand new from germany. Might consider this.

2. The tennis ball trick , well i saw that too but 50/50 chance and since mercedes is vacuum pump locks i doubt will work. hmmm

3. If tow the car from the rear, have to lock the steering right, i prefer find a tow truck who can fit the wheels under the tires, like DBKL tow truck, bcoz the car never move for years dont want to risk turning any wheels as they myt be seized internally, bearings , brakes and all.
