While trying to pump gas in my 95 e320 last night, I noticed that the lid wouldnt open. This also happend two months ago. I noticed when I finally got it open that there is a pin. More than likely it works with the vacum systen in the car. What is the problem, why is it not working properly. thks

Kinked or broken vacuum line or connector? Possible bad PSE pump? Really hard to tell, and would probably be hard to diagnose with it being an intermintant problem.

Lube it. Lock & unlock the doors to move the pin in & out. Assist the movement with a needle nose plier if needed. Lube the pin until it works freely on it own.

thanks alot, I added some lub and its locking and unlocking fine now!!!!
Wait ! Don't put the lube away yet. Its'a good time to lube your sunroof rails. For this I use a little white lithium grease.
