R56 Boot WONT open - advice/help/support required please?
Mini Cooper S 2007 automatic (R56)
After work and doing some shopping on my way home, I tried to open the boot. I found the key fob opened and locked the driver and passenger doors but on using it to try and open the boot, I could hear the car appear to unlock but on trying found it remained locked.
I left the car for a few hours on the drive and returned using the key fob to try and unlock the boot. Again, I could hear the car appear to unlock but remaining locked.
What could be the possible causes and any quick fixes please and is there a way to open the boot manually?
I have read somewhere you can lift the back seat up and find access to a cord but despite getting in the car found the back seat wont lift up.
If there is a way to open the boot manually, can anyone explain how to do this please?
