View Full Version : Boot wont open! fuel flap wont lock!

Just got one problem sorted and another has popped up! :zx11:

I tried to open the boot on my passat using the key fob but it aint budging, tried the key and still no luck! When i lock the boot using the key the rest of the car locks up. So at the minute the only access I have to the boot is through the rear seats which to be honest aint all that practicle!
Also noticed that the fuel filler flap is not locking, I'm not to sure when this has happened it could have been anytime in the past week.
Any help out there?

Once you get it open you will have to remove the trim and watch for lock action as you work it with fob or key. Lock may have failed or something may be disconnected. You need to listen for the central locking solonoid working incase that is faulty.
