306 boot lock problem
anyone out there to help me please?
my '92' 306 has developed a central locking problem recently.
When you open the central locking using the fob the boot lock wont open but the doors open fine.
It has been intermittent and now it seems locked permanently.
anybody got any advice please?

there is a cam type piece of plastic that is attached to the boot locking solinoid via a metal hook you have to take the cover off the boot door and remove the metal bar from the solinoid and twist the cam that the metal bar goes onto at the actual lock mechanisim this allows the boot lock to be used as a normal lock that you can use the key to both lock and open the boot. P.S you have to remove the 2 screws holding the solinoid in place first to allow you to twist the solinoid enough to get the bar off .
For those interested in my workaround... Usual disclaimer: DO THE FOLLOWING AT YOUR OWN RISK
Step 1: Locate the central locking unit
the central locking control unit, is behind the rear passenger seat (off-side/driver side). It is NOT under the drivers seat as told by the Haynes manual, that is actually the alarm control unit and engine immobiliser!
Step 2: Remove the unit
The central locking control unit is accessed, by folding the rear-seat and lifting the boots carpet next to the seat edge, where there are three screws. Open these, and pull out the central locking control unit from behind the seat. There is no need to disconnect the electrical connectors.
Step 3: Bypass the sensor circuit
There are two plug connectors, one black and one white, connected to the unit. To bypass the latch sensor circuit, connect a wire between M623(yellow/green wire) and 6293(blue wire), both of these wires come out of the black connector. All this can be done with the connector in situ.
M623: yellow/green wire in corner of connector
6293: blue wire in same row as above, one hop away.
By shorting this circuit, it effectively closes the loop circuit, telling the control unit that all latches are locked okay.
Hay Presto, you have now disabled the pesky auto unlock feature! Try it by leaving a door open and locking the car, it will lock, but not auto-unlock.
Hope it works for you
REMEMBER THIS IS NOT GUARANTEED AND IT IS ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!
