Scenic I - Boot won't open

I have a 2003 Scenic with a boot problem. The boot simply won't open, I can't even press the button in, so it would seem the boot is still locked. Any ideas how I can get it open or unlock it. The glass bit can be opened as normal.
Thanks guys

Some models have a removable hatch in the boot liner which allows access to the inners of the lock and using a screwdriver or such it can be released. If there is no hatch then it may be necessary to remove the entire liner. The locking solenoid has a habit of seizing and sometimes a few shots of WD40 or the like frees it up. Also check all drian holes are clear as water ingress is usually the culprit

OK, tried the inside door lock button, and it unlocked the boot, but not it wont lock again. I took the liner off and had a look at the solenoid, it is very weak when pressing the key. Tried a little WD40.....not it doesnt operate at all. So I think its going to be a Renault Parts/ Scrappy Job!!!
