    Boot wont open? Deadlocked?

    Hello,

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to open my boot?

    The handle wont work and when you put the key into the lock on the boot it wont turn, does this mean its deadlocked?

    Any help would be fantastic as I could really do with getting in there!

    Even deadlocked the key should still work, try getting some lube in the key hole and work it in and out and side to side gently. The key is rarely used and the locks tend to seize over time, mine was.

    I can't find the circuit diagram for the saloon - it only gives info on the Avant in the guides I have.
    I would assume the wiring is nearly the same in terms of colours etc.

    You could try finding the 0.5mm2 yellow/red wire that runs from the Convenience module (under passenger seat) down the n/s sil to the boot area.
    Cut this wire at a convenient point and with the wire leading to the boot touch to +12v, this should energise the boot motor to unlock.
