Hello and Welcome..
My name is***** happy to help / advise..
Im sorry to see you have had a wait --
With this issue there is little you can do on your own..without equipment. You can make physical checks of the linkages ..its common to get debris from the car, litter etc stuck in a part of the linkages that will cause a jam - so check that ..check too that the boot / shelf part is not actually causing the jam..
If you cannot find the cause as above, you would need a Ford plug in device which will electronically drive it to open / close - but also fault find it by way of fault codes -then to cure the cause..
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
