YOU WILL REQUIRE A SPECIAL CORE DRILL, MADE EXCLUSIVELY FOR MERCEDES, THIS WILL STRIP THE OUTER RING OF THE HARDPLATE FRONT, ONCE THIS IS REMOVED THEN THE REST OF THE IGNITION CAN BE REMOVED THE SAME AS NORMAL, I.E. : INSERT WIRES INTO PROBE HOLES AND RELEASE. I HAVE A G REG 190E TO DO TOMORROW (SAT 7th JAN), THE TOOL COSTS OVER A

I am not sure why you need to know this but, nevertheless... To hotwire any car you need a "slim jim" or something else to unlock the car (if it is locked). Then, here are the rest of the steps. Step one Locate the ignition tumbler, the spot where you normally put your key. Remove the covers and panels around the tumbler. Step two Examine the ignition setup. There should be a panel with five to eight wires clipped to the rear of the tumbler. Remove the panel and try to manually turn the ignition switch using a screwdriver. If you can do this, then you are done! When you turn the ignition switch (usually with a key), it rotates a pin or lever on the back side of the tumbler. The panel is essentially a switch with four positions: off, accessories, full on and ignition. The different positions of the key correspond to each of these positions. Step two Research the color coding of the ignition wires for your specific car model. If you are not able to manually turn the ignition switch with a screwdriver, you will have to strip wires to hot-wire the car. Step three Locate the "on" positive and negative wires in the steering column. They should run up to the ignition tumbler and be color-coded. Step four Pull those wires from the ignition, strip a portion of each and twist them together. The car will now be on and ready for ignition. This is where you truly hot-wire a car. These wires carry a charge, which is why they are called "hot." Step five Find the starter wires and pull them from the ignition tumbler as well. Strip the ends and touch these wires together briefly. This should activate the starter, firing up the car. If you have done everything properly, your car will now be running. Do not leave these wires touching each other once the car is running. Step six Cover up any exposed wires to avoid painful electric shocks. Drive away and have your ignition repaired or a new key made so you do not have to hot-wire the car regularly. Courtesy of EHow.com at http://www.ehow.com/how_2044915_hotwire-car.html

I believe the key has a chip in it. Sometime you can insert key and let it sit for a while and it will re-program . . if not, you may have to take the key to the dealer for re-programing.
