How to Open a Mercedes Trunk

by Vanessa Padgalskas

Opening a trunk on a Mercedes is generally the same for all Mercedes vehicle models. On all Mercedes, the trunk can be opened two different ways. Depending on the size of your car, the trunk will vary in size. The C-Class has the smallest trunk space and the Mercedes sport utility vehicles and station wagons have the largest amount of cargo space.

Locate the button on your Mercedes key featuring a picture of the rear of the car with the trunk open.

2

Hold the button until the trunk opens.

Unlock all the car doors, if you wish to open the trunk manually, by pressing the unlock button on your key or by unlocking the doors from the inside of the car. The unlock button is located on the inside of the driver's-side door. Unlocking all the doors also unlocks the trunk.

Feel for the trunk-release handle located below the Mercedes star on the trunk and above the license plate. Pull the handle towards you to open the trunk.
