Re: Boot lock does not open on Clio

Sounds like the motor has just stopped working & It's locked shut.

Climb through the back seats & remove the cover on the boot. You can manually release it by pulling on the metal rod that connects the mechanism to the button.

Once open, climb out and remove the motor or at least disconnect the rod. This way you'll still be able to open the boot until the new mechanism arrives .

Replace the mechanism & you'll be good

This is what you'll need
