Hey there thanks for the question.

I actually see this pretty frequently where people get clothes and anything else you can think shut in the rear boot.

The trick here is to try and take pressure off the latch so it can UNLOCK. before pulling it open. This requires someone to push INWARD towards the closed position while pressing the release button. Once it releases you will feel a little slack and it will open.

Hi Jake
Thank for your reply. You make it sound like an easy fix. However I don't understand what you mean by pushing inward...
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 8 months ago
Push the door in the closed position firmly to take pressure off the latch. So from the outside push it like your trying to shut it.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
