Re: Megane boot will not open

Water ingress seems to be common with the Megane.
Leave the car a few hours in a dry spot, and try again.
Once you can open it, unscrew the inside panel of the bootlid, so that you can access the lock mechanism.

I'd recommend not using WD40 for the corrosion cleanup, but instead use contact cleaner (which you can get from the likes of Maplin).

Once corrosion and stuff are cleaned up, plug it back together, and seal off the connector with a bit of non-acidic vaseline.
