Hi all,

I’ve had a search and can see there are lots of threads about similar issues, but I can’t get my head around what I need to actually do with the mechanism from inside in order to manually release the boot - can anybody help please? I’ve got a tail light out, and need to open the boot to change it. :(

Will obviously try to get to the bottom of the central locking issue afterwards, but for now just need to get the boot open so I can change this bulb.

Thanks :)

there should an access hole in the black plastic trim. If not, and assuming there is a manual release in the same position on all models, have a look at someone elses car, measure the position and drill a hole in the plastic on your car. I might be making a wrong assumption though!

Thanks for that. There appears to be an access hole marked in the trim, but not cut-out. Assuming this is in the right place, I’ll have a go at cutting/drilling the area and see if there’s a release behind it, just don’t want to hack a hole in the trim if there’s not going to be anything behind it. 🙈

Wasn’t sure whether there was anything I can do at the lock/latch itself to release it?

You can on some cars eg Fiats, but the only option I know is the access hole. I assume there's not enough room to pull the whole trim off?
I don’t think so, but will have a look in the daylight. If not then I’ll dig out the hole saw and cut a neat hole that I can plug afterwards, keep it tidy.

When I’ve cut the hole, I’m assuming there’s just a cable/rod to pull, or an obvious catch? Just wary of causing any more damage 🙈

Thanks!
