Boot on mini 03 won't open


Has the car ever been hit from behind? Has the car ever had any work done on the boot? Does the lock sound like it's doing anything? Have you tried using the key? Have you tried the manual release under the back seat? Information like this really helps diagnose what the problem can be. It sounds like the actuator is disconnected from the lock mechanism; or it could be the power line going back to the lock has been disconnected or damaged; but the only way to find out is get it open and remove the inside panel so you can inspect the lock. Once you can see what it's doing fixing it should be easy.

Hi can not get it to my citroenc5 2006 boot it will not open


Hmm, not at all familiar with Citroens here in The States, but I would say your best bet is to remove your back seat and try to pop it from the inside. Unless it's a station wagon, then just climb over the seat and remove the interior trim. Sounds like the lock cylinder is seized, it happens over time from moisture and lack of use. Or you are using a "valet" key that is designed to not let you open the trunk, sorry, I mean boot. lol. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can remove the lock cylinder and have it rebuilt at a locksmith or Citroen dealer.

How do I get in to the trunk of my car when the battery is dead?


Hi
The fastest and easiest way is too get a jump start from another vehicle or a jumper pack and get your car started. Then you'll be able to open the boot. I can't remember if there is a key lock under the emblem in the center of the boot.
The other way is through the back seat if they are the fold down type in this model. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

My 2001 vw bora's trunk won't open. Lock turns and key works with other doors, however when I try to open the trunk, it makes a noise as though trying to open but remains shut. I have 2 baby car seats in...


if you insert the key in the lock and turn it alittle further the boot should open.the noise you hear is the actuator moving,but the plastic rod to open the boot is probably brocken.
