Is it possible to get into the boot through the back seat or is there any other way to get in. I was trying to fix the jammed lock, disconnected the central locking, shut the boot and now I cant re-open it. Help!

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 IVE GOT A CLK HAD THE SAME PROBLEM THE TROUBLE IS YOU DONT USE THE KEY AND THE LOCK SEIZES UP I HAD TO GO IN THROUGHT THE FIRST AID KIT AND CATCH THE CABLE THAT OPERATES THE REAR SEATS THEN CLIMB INTO THE BOOT AND THERE IS TWO BOLTS AT THE LOCK UNDO THEM THEN TAKE THE LOCK OUT AND REPLACE IT OR PERCIVERE WITH PLENTY WD 40 AND TIME
use the key to open boot as long as the locks are there any door will open manually if you have removed the locks on the boot good luck unless you can get through the back seat into boot you have no chance
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.
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.
