Re: 08 Scenic tailgate lock issue solved.

Hi Joe,

I'm afraid the boot lid on a Renault Megane coupe, is a much different beast to a 2008 scenic tailgate. Also probably a different locking mechanism.

If I understand your problem correctly, the locking mechanism works properly when the boot is open, not when the boot is closed.

Assuming this is the case, my only thought is to check the positioning of the eye the lock catches on to, has it moved to position where the lock can't engage properly.

Usually there are 2 bolts, just loosen them off, move it about a little, see if it works. Also, there may be a build up of muck around the eye over the years, make sure its clean.

A second thought, with the boot lid open, have you tried the locking and unlocking with a bar (screwdriver shaft) in the mechanism, it could be a faulty mechanism.
