Customer Question
Doubt if you can help...
Doubt if you can help. However. Wife stuck in underground car park in Nice, France, with a 2003 Citroen C3 Pluriel. I am in the UK. She opened the boot, and the top half of the tailgate came down, and now won't open, thus unable to close the lower half. Followed instructions on this site (such as opening and closing the convertible roof, locking and unlocking, and giving time for the systems to 'reset'. Car starts fine, all electrics appear to be normal. She is about as technically minded as a cardboard box in a thunderstorm. Any suggestions? Thank you. Andrew
