Clio Boot Locking problems.

Hey this is my first post asking for help, fingers crossed someone can spare a few mins to help me
OK so I own (an evil) 1999 1.2 Clio.
One of my many problems is that a while ago the lock on the boot rotated it usualy went north south now it goes east west.
My problem is that I can't use my key to open it manualy, note that it does open fine when I use the in car cental lock, but my key has never activated the cental locking so I manualy lock and unlock the car since I've owned it.
Its a really small problem I know but hopefully this is one I can fix at home. It's just a pain if I have shopping and kids because I have to open the whole car just to get at the boot.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanx for reading

Re: Clio Boot Locking problems.

It sounds like the lock mounting on the back of the lock has come loose or broken. If you can remove the boot trim panel you may get a better look at what has gone wrong.

Re: Clio Boot Locking problems.

I had a similar problem with my clio, but mine didnt work on the central locking and i had to lock it manually!!!
I went to a breakers yard and got the locking motor and all the bits attached to it for 20.
Its all just a process of opening up the trim panel and looking to make sure all the connecting rods are attached where they should be, it may be simply that one has fallen out and needs putting back!
Not a complicated job!
