Hello

Its possible the little plastic side trims are at fault. They have plastic gears in them and they wear,if it doesn't move properly if its the gear that has stripped the screw inside the flap will be turning but the fin won't move. If nothing is moving or making any sound it could be something else.

There is a common problem with a wiring loom in the boot which gets damaged. Might be worth having a look at it if the boot is open and its accessable
