Re: BOOT not opening

The lock on the galss section is interlocked with the boot lock.
You'll need to get inside the boot and search for either a small hole or access panel. Using a screwdriver the boot lock can usually be manually unlocked.
Once open remove the boot liner and check for signs of eater ingress - a common problem on the Tourer models. Sometimes a goo lashing of WD40 or the like solves the problem. Whilst in there check the drainage tubes and holes are clear.
