Hey guys my boot won't open.
It still makes a clicking noise like its opening but it doesnt open wether its from the remote, interior button or the key itself. I've tried pulling up the boot as I unlock as well as pushing from the inside but it doesnt work!

Anyone know how to get it open!??

perhaps climb in from the inside and try release it by hand. a rod may of become dislodged somewhere.
failing that id go with an oxy

My problem is the opposite. My boot seems to lock, but then i'll go over a speed bump and it will quickly rise slightly and slam down again, wtf.?

before i got new struts on my boot lid i use to have problems with it opening, weight of spoiler made it worse. you would pop it from the inside and get out of your car and close the door and that would be enough for the boot lid to close again.

maybe get someone to pull it up while you push the button? or maybe you need to adjust the latch a bit?
just throwing some ideas

Have you got a plastic cover on the inside?

Can you pull on the rod going the latch?

If not jam a small fat head screw driver into the latch from inside to try to
pop the lock.
