2005 Ford Fietsa Mk6 Boot Lid

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

Recently my boot lid has stopped opening when I use the key (mechanical key). However, it still works perfectly fine when I press the boot open button inside the car. Just not when I put the key in, it doesn't turn.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

does the key turn as far as it did in past or not. If not, try some wd40 in the lock. if it does then it sounds like you need to take the trim of the inside of the bootlid and look at the link between the lock barrel and the catch

Doesn't turn at all now, completely stuck.

 

Will try WD40 tomorrow after work

also that style of car key is bad for wearing out. does the key look very worn?  do you have a spare key in better condition that you can try

No key is fairly new - I lost the old about 18 months ago, so shouldnt havent worn that much.

 

Tried both new one and old spare, neither turns.
