Re: Laguna Estate Tailgate

It's not an uncommon problem as in many cars as decent heat never gets into the boot area.

My neighbour was cursing and swearing at his 4 week old Nissan Qashqai this morning - the boot lock was frozen.

Re: Laguna Estate Tailgate

Have you tried manipulating the catch in the door and squirt some de-icer on it to try and free it up. I take it your version has a key card and not a key like my older one?

Re: Laguna Estate Tailgate

Hi yes key card model, just removed inside panel and checked wires, think maybe locking catch is faulty/broken as it will not catch/stay closed even after good warming
