Car boot won't shut....

Discussion in 'Personal' started by RokensWife, Dec 1, 2011.

  1. The boot on my Astra won't shut - does anybody have an idea as to why this is happening? I really need my car tomorrow to take mini RW to the doctor and run various errands.

    Frozen catch?
    Something in hinge? Bent hinge?

    Pony in the boot?
  3. Check there's nothing stuck in the catch, spray liberally with WD40 and slam it?
  4. Maybe lock and unlock the central locking thingymajig, then try again?

    Check the part that the attachment on the actual lifty-up part of the boot clicks on to is tightly screwed on. We had this problem once, and a simple turn of a screwdriver fixed it.

    Won't lock or won't actually close?
    Central locking including boot or not?

    Have you tried speaking to it in a firm voice?

    Buy a new one from a car boot sale?

    Alright, seriously, boot flap won't close, or lock won't engage?
