    Where on the inside is the door latch located?

    The lock is covered with a plastic panel. Do I need to go behind this to manually open the boot? If so, are you able to explain how please?

That happens quit often on VW, it is the door latch stuck.

Unhook the rear sits, and sneak into the car boot.

Open the door latch from the inside using a screwdriver to move the U-shaped lock, be careful not to damage the lock or the door.

Boot will not open on key fob xtype jag

it may be the boot latch switch is faulty the gem module that controles this funtion may think the boot is already open, or the latch release solenoid/motor may have failed, or a broken wire. around the boot hinge, have you tried your spare remote to eliminate that? if you cant get in your boot at all you will have to remove the rear seats to gain access to the boot area and then remove the latch cover and open manually so you can diagnose the fault, hope this helps

Why wont my car boot wont open on my citren berlingo ?

Can you give a check to the micro switch that is connected to your boot lock?
If the catch gets stuck, open your drivers door, leave it open,reach across & press down the lock on the passenger front side. The locks will lock/ unlock themselves, because they sense a door is open. Repeat this action until you hear the boot unlock. Also, keep your battery well-charged.
Let us know if this helps!!

Cant open the boot no keys for MX5 1991

Sounds like you have the "Valet" key for your car, which has only limited access. You need to get the "Primary" key for your vehicle, but I am not sure how you would go about doing so.
