    Default Signum boots stuck!!

    Just tried to get in the boot of my 54 plate Signum and the boot pops half inch then sticks. I can close it but then won't pop again for 10min or so. Help!
    Sorry if there's already a thread for this, I'm standing in a field tryin to find one on my iPhone while my 5yr old has footie training.

    Nige if you climb in the boot and look at the boot lining, just above the catch area there is a square hole. Is this not a manual release for the boot catch? Ive seen it before just never though it could be for anything else, just never seen a tool to use to turn it.

    yes if you insert a large flatblade screw driver or socket extention then it open the boot manulally.. Now I have just got to take off the trip panel to get the plastic lug back that I had to push in to find this out.
