My fist post!!

After owning a B5 1.8SE Avant for 7 years I am now the proud owner of a 3.0 QS B6 Avant.

Ihave a problem in that in the last couple of days I am unable to properly close and lock the boot

I have partly removed the trim from the door and can see the rod linkage from the solenoid to the lock but it appears jammed in position.

Any ideas as to problem. Lock appears ok with no rust. How easy is it to remove remainder of trim ie the plastic section immediately below the glass.

Thanks in Advance
