Hello,
I'm a new MB owner my car only has 35 miles on it, I've been watching videos for days the car has a lot of technology to learn. Here is something I can not find an answer to how do you lock the trunk to keep other drivers or valet out. I have no switch in the glovebox, nor is there any place to use the valet key around the trunk. Valet mode on the app does not prevent the trunk from being opened. Can anyone help? Btw I have a 2021 CLA35 AMG. Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forum! I'm not across the changes in a 2021 AMG 35, but there used to be a toggle in the glove box to make sure the trunk remained locked even when using keyless go. This was across a few MB models. If it isn't in there any longer, I apologise in advance, and hopefully someone with a 35 can assist!

Thank you for your reply I appreciate it. Unfortunately I have no buttons in the glovebox, like they show. Thank you again for your help.:)

Yes I have the book, nothing about locking the trunk. I,m finding the book to be very vague I've been referring to videos to fill in the information gaps. Thank you for the suggestion I'm starting to think that this that locking the trunk is not an option in this car. Thanks again.🙂

Welcome to the CLA Forum CLA 35 :)
I went through the '21 35 manual and did not see anything either.
Then I looked on eBay and saw hundreds of "Trunk Locks," some of which might possibly be added to your trunk, if it is that important to you.
Personally, there are no valets qualified to sit behind my wheel...I self-park and walk 100% of the time and never have high value items in the CLA.

Thank you for the information, it really blows my mind with all the technology in this car that something so simple was omitted. I really appreciate your help.🙂

I am new to this thread and have just (two weeks ago) purchased my CLA35. From other forums it sounds like it'll be at least a year away and not the months the dealer indicated. Would appreciate any reviews of the car once you've had a chance to evaluate. Can I also ask when you ordered and how long you waited for delivery. Thank you :)
