Hi all,

I just bought a 250d GLC. Today. I love it. I have checked the boot for the tool kit and all I have is the Red Triangle, A cargo net and another thing I have no clue about. Should I have the emergency Tyre kit, I bought this off a second hand dealer. Just wondering if it should be in there. Also my Spare key does not work, any thoughts

Thanks
Newbie Martyn

There is ordinarily, no spare kit with a Glc, whilst it is a factory option, if it was specced from new, half the boot carpet would be missing to allow fitment
At the left hand side of underboot, there should be a compressor and can of “goo” tucked away behind the plastic flap.

in regards to the key, d try changing battery first, Cr2053 flat penny battery I believe, simple enough to access, remove the key blade and prise the back cover, if in doubt, check YouTube
congrats on car btw!

Hi Martin and welcome to the forum. Hope your spare key just has a flat battery. BTW, you can switch the fob off by double-clicking the lock button when not in use. This will halt the constant handshaking between the fob and car to reduce battery drain not to mention stopping some lowlife hijacking the code with a receiver.

Back in 2016 when Red Ken was new, in addition to the warning triangle, cargo net and load space separator you already have, I found a First Aid kit, 2 Mercedes-branded hi-viz vests and a collapsible plastic crate all stowed under the load floor. As @snrbrtsn has pointed out, the bottle of puncture jollop and tyre inflator should be hidden behind a plastic flap in the nearside rear wheel arch recess. T A screw-in towing eye should be in there too. It is quite possible the previous owner retained some of these 'useful' items but you car dealer may feel obliged to replace them if you ask.

I suspect this depends on country/tyres. My GLC had no compressor/goo because it came with run-flat tyres.

I forgot about those
That collapsible plastic crate is perhaps the most useless looking thing ever, however, every weekend, it’s brought from the garage into the house and “our” day sacks are removed and loaded with fresh sandwiches and juice, then returned to car for our mtb adventures, useless things are useful!
Whilst the first aid kit has been used countless times on grazes and gravel rash after over confidence falls!
