    Default boot relaese

    Always wandered this.
    My brothers wife has a Zafira which the boot wont unlock.
    My signum is the same electric lock but does work, I just want to know for future.
    Is there a fail safe if the electric lock fails and is it in the same position on other VX's?
    Thanks

    On the Vec there is a hole in the boot liner that allows you to insert the valve cap tool, in the petrol flap, and open it manually Dont know if this is the same on the Signum though.

    Page 60 of the preface Signum Manual, it does indeed come with an emergency release.

    Emergency unlocking of tailgate frominside using vehicle key
    Insert key into lock and turn anticlockwise
    as far as it will go: tailgate is unlocked

    The micro switch tends to stick especially when its cold wet n horrible. The rubber protector can be removed and the mechanism cleaned but its a pain in the **** to get back in.
    I found over the years when it starts to stick just give a couple of sharp thumps with the side of a fist in the switch area. This will release the switch from the stuck position and the boot will then open. saves you climbing inside. It can be a right pain.

    There is a slot for the key/flat screwdriver that can be accessed from the inside of he boot.

    you will at some point need to give the switch mechanism a good clean with wd40 to stop this happening though.
