Re: 08 Scenic tailgate lock issue solved.

Sorry I've taken so long to reply, I didn't get an email about your query.

I think you're dash-light is telling you that the car thinks the door is open. If you can't lift it, no-one can, so your car is probably secure.

I've just looked inside my tailgate lock, the part of the mechanism I can see through the small hole (Jelly bean) is small round circle connected to the rest of the mechanism by what could look like a V if the circle was broken off.

This could be the only remaining accessible part of the mechanism. As is stands, the "circle / V is situated in the middle of the access port.

As you have little or no alternative, it might be worth trying to push the V over as described.
