Car boot wont open


get someone to push down on the boot lid, if using the pull lid opener, or if using the key push down and turn key yourself. when it clicks, have them/you let it go, it should open, if it doesnt then get in the trunk from the back seat, crawell in and take a flashlight and a flat screwdriver. turn the key slot from the inside. You will probably find a bent or missing key shaft. If it does open from pushing down on it and pulling the release or using the key, then you have a bent locking clasp or a bent ketch on the body of the car. where it ketches, looks like it may be loose or bent to me. take care

My trunk on my 1991 lexus wont open and in trying to open it the key part was pushed to hard and now i cant even get to it just have a hole where key used to be and trunk is still not open


right if youre lucky as the key lock has gone in if you can get on teh end of the metal rod with long nosed pliers and pull or push it then it will open ,now if lock was a staright push type then a push the lever behind inwards and boot (trunk) will open ,if your unsure then ask a local mechanic as he will open it in seconds for you .

Boot switch will no open it remoute will not open it and the boot button will not open it. unable to open roof to try gain access that way 2000 clk230 cheers


Hi

I am assuming this is a mercedes car not van as you have not stated what model or year??

If you look on your remote keyfob there is a shiny silver metal part, most owners do not know this but if you pull that it will slide out of the key remote, this is an override key in case the doors and boot will not open, if you look on the boot lock below the mercedes badge there is a small hole for this key, that will open it.

what model what year?

Regards
Dan

My trunk will not open on my wife's 2001 slk Mercedes. It's not locked. I think something is stuck in the lock. Can you help me?


your can check is it something stuck in the lock, first operate your roof either way, if you are going to open the roof as a first action boot lid will open to backward, let boot lid fully open and stop operating the roof, ignition off and have a look if something stuck you can see, if you are going to close the roof let close the roof and before close the boot lid stop operating roof switch, otherwise faulty boot lid lock, if faulty lock but you can try by mettle key blade which is in your electronic key, first take out mettle key from electronic key then insert mettle key in to the key hole in boot lid turn fully left and open boot if not work turn fully left and push it in, is this information helped you?

Hi, turning the key in either the driver or passenger side lock of my mk3 vw golf gti colour concept gets no response so i cannot open the car. i cannot gain access via the boot either as the key will not...


You have what we call broken spatulars if I have spelt that correct, on the other side of your lock barrell is a very brital metal rod which always snaps, if you go to your dealer they willnow exactly what you mean as it is too common, best to replace the rod and all the springs and clips too, the use of a vice is a must unless you have really strong fingers.

Mercedes-Benz 230clk coupe 1998 with dead battery


I had same problem with my 2002 CLK430. Dead battery with car locked. You can't open doors with the mechanical key (inside remote key), as windows need power to slide down slightly to allow clearance, so you can't access the hood release. The answer is to insert the mechanical key in the key hole for the trunk (boot). It will only go in one way, with the slightly larger grip part down. I found it easiest to turn with a pair of flat nosed pliers. Turn counterclockwise to the left to to the 11 o'clock position. Then push the release in and the trunk will open. Battery is located in the right rear quarter under the flooring panel that also covers spare tire. Hook up charger or jumper cables and power will come back on, as will alarm. To disable, just push the unlock button on the remote key. You should be good to go from here!

How to open boot from inside the car( cant seem to find button )


First of all
  • does it have an electric operated boot release button?

If it does , It probably needs adjusting to remove slack tension.
Trouble is its located.....in the boot....AARRRRGGGHH !! LoL
Although I own a V8 Holden Statesman, not a Alfa GTV,
An elec boot release is an elec boot release, Try what I do for mine.
Have someone push down on boot lid & release it , as you keep quickly hitting the button.OR have them sit on it.
Works most of the time for me .

  • IF IT HAS A KEY OPERATED BOOT
If key fails to turn quite enough to open the boot, Or not at all , then the barrel may need lubrication or replacement.

As electric boot release motors only have a small amount of torque & share the same mechanism as the key itself.Therefore a "sticky" lock will eventually result in the loss of cable tension


To Lubricate you lock ...( no pun intended lol )
  1. Dip the your key in some oil .Motor/Baby/Sewing/Tan/Cooking anything like that, just on the area that is inserted into the lock.
And insert into the lock , Remove & repeat over , whilst jiggling the key untill it will open

  • Or Use a spray product such as CRC or WD-50 with the small straw that inserts into nozzle.

If that fails , and you get cannot access the rear of the lock area from inside the boot to manually operate the latch, Then youll need to force it open and replace the barrel itself.

First visit the wreckers/Auto shop and pick one up...dont forget the key...lol

Next Hammer a suitablly sized flat-blade screw driver into the keyslot of the bootlock, take care not to damage the car, but dont be afraid of making the lock itself look reaaal ugly, hammer,twist,wiggle untill its either open or out of the way .
once visible , turn the "square hole" to open your boot and attach the new lock.

After it has
