Hello ... My name is XXXXX XXXXX the previous expert has opted out ...so I will do all I can to help you here.. First - I can only apologise that this appears to have taken so long...

So that we together can progress - Can I just ask you ... on the plastic panel..the one covering the inner of the tailgate..hatch... can you see a small like blanking plug - and if you can , have you removed that ?

Rgds - MIKE...................................
Customer reply replied 6 years ago.
i have looked there is no small plug but a small about six incheds oblong piece of plastic which I have now removed what next
Customer reply replied 6 years ago.
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO REPLY ???
Mike, Honda Technician replied 6 years ago.
Hello again...

Thank you for your reply. Im sorry I couldn't reply sooner as I was off at the weekend...

Ok.. if you look or feel inside the hole where you have removed the "plug".. there is a lever that you operate to manually open the boot...

This is the Emergency boot release for when you get a fault with the normal operation...

IF that doesn't open the boot- you will have to unbolt the mechanism from the boot itself - which will allow the boot to open - then you will have to determine what is wrong with the lock / mechanism and go from there. Quite often , they need a new mechanism but they are all different so you will need to inspect the mechanism once its open and determine your problem and then go from there...

I'm very pleased to have helped you - but do ask me if you need anything more..


Kind Rgds, MIKE
