    Although it was never clarified if the final suggestion actually did the trick!

    it'll be a sticky servo catch.....if you remove the boot inner liner you can extract the lock, ( 3 torx bolts hold it into the frame) then undo the 2 torx screws that hold the servo to the carrier..you'll see a threaded cross slide.. WD40 or spray grease that area and the pivot..reassemble..job done..

    for some reason VX run them with minimal lube..a touch of oil and they run a treat..

    took it to nearby vauxhalls which are getting currently boughtout so they dont want anything to do with the work! been pushed about to other garages and its apparently a failed boot lock!

    cant get hold of one so vauxhall are gonna look at forcing it to lock then getting the part in!

    Sorry - I never updated the thread!!

    Nothing would work on it so we took it to the local dealer and the whole boot mechanism was broken - complete replacement. Apparantley its not uncommon and is a physical failure ie parts have to be replaced.
