I just bought an EB XR8, and up until yesterday I could open the boot. Now the mechanism appears to be jammed. It wont release with the dash button and when I use the key, I can trrn the lock but no release. Got in the boot through the back seats and attempted to force the catch open with a screwdriver, still a no go. This is the first Falcon I have owned, so I am not too familiar with how thing work yet. ANY help would be much much appreciated
