Saloon or Hatch. If hatch, can you lift parcel shelf?
Are the seats are foldable and unlockable from the cabin area?

You have to turn the key anticlockwise to unlock the button.
you'd imagine it would be the other way though, more than likely you inadvertently locked it with the key?

Thanks for replies, but the boot won't open, it is a saloon and have the back seat down, so where does one go from here. The key makes clicking noise and the lock on the boot waggles but still won't open, quite frustrating, any suggestions would be most welcome, thanks

Ah, this happened me before, does the key just turn in the lock? You should hear a sound like a motor turning when you turn the key. Mine fixed itself eventually after I oiled it.

Yep exact same, just spun around in the lock. I don't think it'll be an easy one to sort. I have the Haynes manual, will try and see if there's any exploded diagrams etc

Just thinking, it may be possible to undo the 2 bolts holding the lock hook thing onto the body if you can get into the boot. I'll have a look at mine tomorrow evening for you


Haynes manual has nothing.
