The boot lid on my EF sedan won't open any more. Both the electric release and the key will no longer open the boot.

I can't get into the boot by folding the rear seats down either as the LPG tank is in the way.

Any one know how i can get it open with out damaging the car???

hahaha.. poor bloke's never going to live that down.

Is there a manual release in the boot? Maybe you could reach past the lpg tank with a coat hanger or something and try that..

It sounds like the boot lock or catch is busted. Tried a locksmith?
