Mk7 Boot Lock jammed in the Shut Position

Recommended Posts

I had to carry a bike in the back of my Fiestam MK7
To stop the "Boot Open" alarm, I mechanically moved the lock mechanism to the closed position
I thought that when I used the key fob to release the door locks this would also release the lock mechanism
However, it is permanently stuck in the closed position, so now I am unable to close the boot

On reflection a stupid move

Any idea how I can release this lock now back to its open position

you see a little indentation on both images of the black plastic/rubber cover. force a small flat bladed screwdriver in and you can lever the mechanism to release

Iantt

Phew thanks for that info.
I had visions of removing the boot plastic cover, then removing the lock and getting inside to release mechanism
I will give it a try next morning.

Much appreciated

Yes, I found the indentation on the rear right of the plastic cover
With screwdriver, lock restored back to normal

Thanks
