Boot lock does not open at all. Not with electronic key and not when other doors are open. Roof is closed and cannot be opened (screen is not engaged). Checked fuses, manual key, pressing on the boot etc. nothing works. Can anyone HELP?
Thanks

Open boot from inside. Their should be a small hole near the lock which you can press with a screwdriver and this will pop the boot. You then need to check the wiring around the hinge. Check in the rubber gator.

207cc Roof/Boot

Do you mean the boot cannot be opened in the luggage configuration (ie as per a normal boot), will not open in order to store the roof (in the other direction) or both?

If it will open in the luggage configuration have you pulled out the screen?

Any messages on the info screen such as 'impossible to complete roof manoeuvre etc...)

Full information would be helpful.:(

207cc Roof/Boot

I think I'm beginning to understand. When you say screen is not engaged you mean the screen in the boot? I thought you meant the roof was not engaged with the screen section properly:eek:. If the screen is not engaged (or pulled out) then the roof will not open whatever else may be wrong. Do you have a message saying something like 'Not possible to complete roof manoeuvre as screen is not....etc) ?

If you do then the roof is probably ok as it would not open anyway without the screen being pulled out so your problem could be confined to the 'normal' boot opening mechanism and you may need diagnostics on that if it isn't fuse related. I'm not aware of any way of manually opening the boot in the cc but there may be others who know more than I do.

Good luck.

Boot lock does not open by any means (no "click" at any time). Roof is closed. When I tried to open the roof, because that will open the boot, it got the message screen is not deployed. Hve moved seat and back to see if I could get in from there. No. Have also tried to disconnect the battery for 10 min, no change. Other doors, no problem. My problem is only that I have to get things out of the boot (laptop size stuff).
Thanks for any help - 207 cc

Unable to open the tailgate door from outside

We have the Peugeot 207 and are also unable to open the tailgate with the fob.

I've managed to open it via climbing into the back of the car and inserting the small screwdirver in the hole internally (as advised below)

When the fob is pressed there appears to be no solenoid noise to the tailgate lock but there is for the other locks that works fine.

Is this therefore an electrical fault or is the lock itself faulty. I guess it's the first as the lock does open when done manually from inside.

I checked the log book and there is no fuse specifically for the tailgate lock only for the central locking and if it works for the other doors it should work for the tailgate lock so it can't be the fuse.

There is a mention of a 'gator'? What is that ans where can it be found ?

Great advice

Open boot from inside. Their should be a small hole near the lock which you can press with a screwdriver and this will pop the boot. You then need to check the wiring around the hinge. Check in the rubber gator.
This advice worked a treat.Needs to be a thin screw driver approx size of a biro refil.
As lead up to this fault the boot interior light was going off as boot opened.Found cable green/yellow had broken repaired with use of a block connector. All now working fine and advice saved expensive garage fees.Thank you

How do you get into the trunk?

Hi
I see that several persons have solves the opening of the trunk by pressing a small screwdrivir into a hole on the inside of the trunk lock. How do you get from inside of the car to inside of the trunk. There is no room....

You might be able to squeeze enough of yourself in by folding the back seat down. Otherwise, failing that, remove the seat squabs and then the seat backs. It will take about 10 minutes.

Did i mention that i have the 207 CC?
There is no room.
Yesterday the boot lock all of a sudden worked and i got to the cables.

After a while i found a faulty cable, soldered it back together and fixed it.

After that both the boot locking mechanism and the roof is working again.

My wife is happy. (It´s her car.)

We had exactly the same problem when going out this morning. The roof would not move (no error messages) and the boot would not open when we went to check whether the luggage screen was pulled across.

When we got to where we were going I gave the boot a good push down as my wife had opened it earlier prior to setting off. It still would not open. We locked the car up and left it for a couple of hours.

When we returned and unlocked the car we were able to open the boot - and the roof opened normally. The screen was pulled across when we opened the boot.

I put this epsiode down to the boot perhaps not latching properly when my wife closed it, and me trying to operate the roof then jammed everything. Could be wrong, but worth knowing for anyone experiencing the same problem.....

Does the roof operate? If not then read my post before yours.

I know a way of opening the boot on a cc but i would need to be at the car to do it as i would not want anyone making a mistake during the procedure so im not posting it here i have done it a few times for people now but it takes about an hour to get in and fix the issues sadly you cannot get to the bootlock through seats on CC models.
