comment How can I put down stuck rear sunshade on a 2006 Mercedes E class?
@BobCross that's where it's supposed to be according to the manual but I didn't see anything that could be opened, unless it needs prying. Manual says where the boxes are but not how to open them... I'll double check in better light though. I'll be talking with a mech soon (though he's an audio guy) and have him peek at the fuses if he gets to it first.

@RoryAlsop Hm, really? So my 6 year old bulbs should last quite a while still for example?

@Alex huh, I'll have to investigate, in all the Benz forums I've never heard of someone successfully reprogramming a key

@Alex really? Which key was it? Are you sure it was used? They shouldn't be able to be erased

Getting the "emergency key" right really is important so make sure it fits before you leave the dealer; I've got a $170 key fob sitting in a drawer because they got the wrong part and I'm waiting for them to ship the right one.

Oh....no one else makes the keys except Mercedes' manufacturers. I'm not familiar with any one else offering keys smart keys (or emergency keys for that matter)

The one thing I never did turn up was an official Mercedes resource on this, though I've confirmed this with a Mercedes authorized dealer.
