Re: 1998 Grand Espace RXE Boot Door LOCK!

I had this problem only last week but each time i tried to get it open it just wouldnt. So in the end i cut a 6 inch slit from the inside right near to where the lock should be and pulled the cable(bar) and hey presto she opened.... The only problem i could find was that the solinoid was sticking so out came the grease and ten mins later working as good as new... You wouldnt even know i had cut it as it fits snug back in too..
I did take the solinoid of but as you say it took a while to get the inner cover off(although i didnt take it right off)About an hour from start to finish..
Currently in shezbags's garage:
