I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,

Hello

on the W211 ( your model year) there's no seperate jump terminals like there are on later cars

you have to go directly onto the battery in the boot, which does mean removing some of the trim so you can get onto the terminals

also if you're trying to jump start its a good idea to have the headlamp's turned on before you connect the leads to help absorb any power 'spike' which can blow fuses
