Re: Megane 2002 Mk1 Boot won't lock

I had the opposite problem on our 2002 Mk1. The boot was locked and wouldn't unlock.

It turned out to be the lock actuator on the bootlid itself

If you open the boot and take off the trim panel inside, This will give you access to the locking system.

If you take off the lock, (at the back of the button two screws and 1 wiring connector) you should be able to free up the locking system and get the locks working again. There was an issue with the cog inside this small unit seizing up and stopping the boot from locking and unlocking. Just clean this up, grease it up again and pop it back together, you should have it working again

I had it working and back together in 20mins in the car park in front of my apartment.
