I dont know about the sunroof technic but i dont think most people would be able to reach for a tool and open the roof in such a panic situation its quite useless imo. Besides only the new mercs come with fitted with sunroofs and i am sure 99% of the customers are not aware of this sunroof tool.
These are small things which a company like MB has neglected, which is astonishing because germans give alot of attention to detailing.They have put sophistication before safety in this feature which is a big safety hazard.
My adivce to all the merc owners here is to unlock your doors the minute you see yourself passing through a water logged area, also do NOT go over 10km/hr as the doors automatically lock once you reach that speed.
