1990 Mulsanne S
The boot lock release handle, UB30400, will not move so I cannot open the boot.
I have just collected the car from the paint shop after having the boot resprayed. It would appear that they have refitted the boot incorrectly. (And I gave them copies of the service manual).
Although the battery is almost flat from standing for two weeks the central locking works when I turn the boot key and with the remote.
The switch in the glove box is set to Auto.
Do I remember reading that there is a way to open the via the tyre pressure check hole in the boot floor. I canít find anything on the forum.
The car is going back to the painters but I would like some info before I take it.
Any suggestions on how to open the boot welcome.
Many thanks,
Darryl

Hi Daryl
I think the idea is to unbolt the latch through the hole, sounds very tricky but possible I think.

Thanks Micheal,
The paint people managed to open the boot, strong hands apparently, the plastic/nylon lever was cracked.
They made a replacement from metal.
