    give it two sharp blows with the side of your fist in the lock area it should open. failing that climb inside and open it using the slot with your key/screwdriver. once open you will need to clean the micro switch mechanism. the plate can stick.

    PS the rubber cover is a pain to get back in.....

    The button on the drivers door doesn't "open" the boot. It just unlocks it.

    Are you saying it doesn't unlock the boot (the beep) or does the tailgate release (above the numberplate - between the numberplate lights) not work?

    Yea definitely sounds like the microswitch, the button is not activating the switch to power the latch to unlock.

    If the plate is stuck in the up position against the micro-switch then nothing will happen.
