hi john,


have you tried pushing the lock in whilst turning the key in the boot lock?


also try pushing down on the boot lid while someone presses the boot release, then pull up sharply. sometimes the switch for the bootlock sticks & pressing down first then pulling will release.


have you got many loose items in the boot? clothing or bags with straps? sometimes they can get jammed in the lock & the bootlid may require more force than normal to open it.


I hope this is of assistance.


Best regards, Paul
