Re: 08 Scenic tailgate lock issue solved.

hi all

just bought a 2nd hand renault megane coupe a few weeks ago

only today did i find out that the boot ( i presume that is what you are calling the tailgate) was never locked

and here was me putting loads of expensive stuff in it thinking it was safe when i used the central locking

anyway i opened the boot and tried the remote and i could here lock engage disengage

so i closed boot and sure enough problem solved

it is now locked. only thing is, it doesn't bloody open now no matter what i do

unsure where to put screwdriver as suggested at start of thread as boor space is tiny and i cannot get into it at all

NCT is due in a couple of weeks so really need to get this fixed

also worried if i get it unlocked then there is a risk that spare tyre could be stolen

any idea of cost for garage to fix?
