    It can be cleaned up with WD40 and made to work again. Remove the rubber cover then just clean it up with WD40.

    The rubber cover is a bit of a faff on to get back in place with the use of a small flat blade screw driver. But it can be done as I have done mine twice.

    They generaly stick when it turns cold and damp.

    Thats if it is the boot your talking about

    Default Signum tailgate won't unlock.

    Just had the tailgate refuse to unlock on the 'zapper'. All other doors working OK. Big problem is - how do I unlock it manually to get at the lock bits and pieces. (Managed to get dogs out thro' back door - phew !!)

    Look for a manual unlock mechanism on the inside of the tailgate - should look like a slot for a screwdriver to go into and you turn it.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 8v

    Year : 55

    Mileage : 92,000

    Default

    If you are in fact referring to the "Boot/Tailgate" Andy then this may be of some use to you :-

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=141403


    But if you are reffering to the "Rear Door" (as posted in topic title) then I think it will mean having to get the door surround off in order to get access to the locking mechanism inside the door to try open it. Then I guess you'll have to either replace the locking mechanism unless the fault is easily identifiable/repairable

    Good luck getting it sorted

    Thanks for your help, mate. My Siggy is a face-lift model ('07) and there is no sign of any lock/keyhole etc. on the inside. I seem to remember that one of the number plate lights comes into the plot - anyone any ideas on this, please.

    look at thebottom middle of the tailgate trim in the boot and there may be a rubber grommet
    if there is pop this out and the unlock mechanism is behind this
