Re: Help & Advice Needed Please - Boot Will Not Open
If you havent resolved this issue.....
With the back seats folded down, at the bottom of the boot panle should be a T20 torx screw that you can remove and then you can pull the boot trim off from the inside, the rest is only held on by clips.
Once you have removed this, you will see the lock mechanism in the middle, if you pull the metal bar upwards, the boot will open.
And yes you can replace this with a part from a scrap yard as i have done the same myself.
You need the part that is screwed inside the boot, not the part that connects to the car, it will have a quarter circle shape pivet point on it where the metal bar is located, and you can remove the bar and replace the part pretty easily.
Hope that helps
