If you drop the middle part of the rear seat you might be able to reach in with a long screw driver and flick the catch, Thats what ive had to do a few times when my lever sticks now and then.

hope that helps mate.

hawkeye i take it?

my key has stopped working in the boot, although the lever still works. the middle bit in the seats is the only easy way in im afraid.

has anyone got any fixes for this? tried good old wd40....nothing. have heard of a few others, coating the key in fairy liquid? heating the key up with a flame and using it in the lock? and lastly taking the whole boot lock out and soaking it and cleaning it?

2nd time ive had this problem although the 1st was under warranty thank feck!!

obviously these fixes wont cure the lever problem only the key/lock one i'll let u know how i get on as planning on tackling this over the next 1-2 weeks

There's a small lever on the catch when you get it open - it can be flicked to allow opening from the lever at the driver's seat or if flicked the other way the lever at the seat doesn't contact and there fore you can only use the key - have a close look when you get it open and you will see how it works. Someone/thing must have caught your catch lever and moved it to the wrong position.

I did that before with a bag locked the whole boot down key and lever stopped working had to take the speaker out the shelf and poke it with a long screwdriver

Strangely enough my boot lock has stopped working with the key in the last couple of weeks as well. Still works off the lever thankfully.

Managed to get the boot open with screwdriver , every time I shut it I gave to do the same , is there a way that the lock can be put so it works normal , incase there is like a safty lock that I have locked by mistake ! Does that make sense ?
