Tailgate Doesn't Open
Has anyone had the following experience on a series 3 Espace?
The tailgate will not open. The handle can move but there is no resistance from the locking system in the tailgate (normally actuates the mechanism). The handle is sprung loaded and now remains in the depressed position, inside the tailgate.
The interior trim panel cannot be removed without damage as the tailgate is locked.
I'm of a mind to cut through the trim panel from the inside to see what has gone wrong. Any pictures of the mechanism itself? Any better suggestions?
