    Open your fuel flap and there should be a little hole/bracket on the inside on the left hand side. If there is then it should lock automatically.

    Like bishbang said, if there is you need to get your hand in behind the panel in the boot and push the bar on the motor to get the pin out put a bit of oil on it and push and pull the bar on the motor a few times and it should start working, had to do it on my old vectra b.

    You should be able to see the pin when you have the flap open, and operate the lock option
    As above, if it is powering but not moving it may have jammed
    Once this happens they don't usually last more than a few weeks, so will need replacing
    From memory access is very poor but is easy enough with a mini socket set
