, my boss has got his boot stuck by pushing it down to close

Customer Question

Hi, my boss has got his boot stuck by pushing it down to close it (as I assume that it was too full to close automatically), how do I now get it open to remove his bags? Thanks

try pushing down on the boot lid whilst your assisstant press's the boor unlock button, this will take the pressure off the lock and should allow it to release, as soon as you feel the 'clunk' let go of the boot lid

Sorry, but your answer came almost two hours after we managed to get the boot open (but fyi, we did as you suggested, even though you hadn't replied at this point; two people held the boot lid down whilst we tried to open it and it worked).
