'97 S500 Rear Back Door Will Not Open

Hi....I need help! When I was backing up on the ice the car went back too far and just bumped a tree on the rear right side (more to the middle) with my trunk. Now the right rear door will not open from the inside or outside. The handles all work freely. My SRS light now stays on and it makes rumbling, vibration sound when in gear but not park or reverse. I'm not a rich man, so I would like to fix it myself, if possible. Does anybody have any ideas?
Thank you,
Jim from Nova Scotia

Did Mercedes Make it Too Complicated?

Hi...I had no responses...so I'm guessing there's nothing I can do?

Jim, it sounds like it must have been quite a bump?
You may have to take it to body shop to determine if the chassis has been damaged (compressed) in that area.

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.
