Thanks but I know where that one is.
I'm taking about when your sitting in the car. Every other car I've ever driven has a button or level to open the boot. Same as you would for the Bonnet

No other method that I've discovered in two years of driving!.

There is an emergency method of opening the boot/tailgate but that involves crawling into the back and poking a thin screwdriver through a small hole.

The 308 just doesn't have an internal tailgate release.

If you want to open the tailgate go round the back to the tailgate & press the release button to open it.

Thinking further about this an internal release button just doesn't seem to be a PSA thing. My 2013 C5 doesn't have one. Neither did the predecessors of our current cars, a 2001 Xsara and a 2003 C5.

Are there any PSA models (either current or recent past) that had an internal release?

Thanks All.
Strange to find a car that doesn't have another way to open the boot.
( Excluding picking a hole with a screw driver )
But I appreciate the responses.

Well you need to go round to the back & lift the tailgate up to put anything in the boot anyway, I don't see the point in an internal boot release button when there's a perfectly good useable one on the tailgate already.

What's the point of releasing the boot from inside the car? You still have to go out and open it, you might as well release it from outside.
