Question Re: Scenic II (04 Plate) Tailgate Lock not releasing

Hi. I have the same problem. The tailgate can be only opened by moving the little while lever from inside the boot. I can hear a motor noise when pressing the release button (just above the number place) but this does not result in releasing the lock. I took the plastic cover off the locking mechanism on the tailgate and sprayed it with a good amount of WD40 but it made no difference. Can anyone suggest how to go further? Take tailgate lining off? Take the mechanism off the tailgate etc? I'd like to have a go at it myself but I don't know how! Thank you in advance.
