There is a manual trunk release that is inside the car near the rear seats. You must make sure to pull the release towards the tunnel/middle of the car, not out away from it. Apparently, a number of sales people have tried to demonstrate it and by pulling on it incorrectly, broke the inner workings leaving the trunk then incapable of latching closed. The repair is not simple. Something about the cable being encased in a tube that is not straight but curved, so that when you pull on it the wrong way, it breaks something. Lotus is redesigning that component.

Also note you may need someone to gently lift on the trunk as you pull the lever. It should be a yellow lever.

Where is the trunk release on the Lotus Evora S?


it is in and or under the back seat. put it toward the middle of the car. if not you will brake it and the truck will not close. So you might want to go to the dealer to find out if there is a fix now to get the cable replaced so if you try to open it the wrong way at least you can close the trunk

How can i open the trunk from inside a running buick regal 2011?


If that model has a fold down section of the rear seat back, the manufacturer normally installs an accessible manual boot release tab in the vicinity of the fold down seat section just inside the trunk compartment.

If there is no fold down seat in that model or no manual boot release inside the trunk area, the rear seat needs to be removed so that you can access the trunk from inside the car.

TRUNK WONT OPEN WITH TRUNK RELEASE BUTTON ON DASH OR WITH REMOTE


Check for broken wires running from the body to the trunk lid through the rubber boot.When the trunk is closing you can see the kink in the rubber boot.There are 11 wires to supply 1 solenoid so I think Chrysler knew there was problem.

Fuel cap and boot release buttons not working


Hello,
I have a 2001 Audi TT Audi TT roadster, 87,000 miles. I love the car, but like all cars, things happen.

Open your checkbook, It is the command module , under your back glass, where the top goes , you will see a small door cut into the felt. Mine got wet and started a whole chain of events.

Seal that Window Good. 800$ repair to replace the comman module.

1. Windows were going up and down 1/4" all random times.
2. The Gas Release and Trunk Release buttons stop working
3. Alarm would go off at odd times.
4. Trunk would not open automatically.

To open the Trunk, behind the passenger seat is a small box, open it with you key and you will see the manual trunk release

To open your gas cap, on the passenger side of the trunk, you will see a small felt opening under the gas cap. Open it and pull back decently hard and the gas cap will open.

Good Luck.
