Finally spent a little time on the 300E today. Since buying the car, the driver's door would lock, but not unlock. Today I switched the passenger's side lock with the driver's side. That went fine, and now I can lock/unlock from the driver's side.
My question. When I had the bad lock out, I tried the key and it behaved exactly as it did when in the door - it would lock but not unlock. This would seem to rule out a problem with the door. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this without springing for $250 for a new lock from MB?
