R53 boot issue.

Hi all,

I've got an issue where my boot has randomly decided to stay jammed shut. It won't respond to pressing the handle on the boot itself. I've tried the boot release under the rear seat which makes the right sound but still doesn't open it.

Any ideas please?

Thanks


Mark

Try giving the release mechanism a good yank, if not it could be a faulty lock if it's not working.
