Sounds like the mechanism has jammed, I can't think of a way into the boot though...as the rear seats and parcel shelf are fixed!

Must happen a fair bit tho...sure someone will know :D

The cold has probably completely jammed an already half-stuck mechanism...

Libe BB was saying, force the boot up and down while someone is pushing the opening lever in the inside...

And don't forget to lubricate it after you managed to open it...

This was solved on another forum. Something about two levers in the mechanism having swapped places. You need to push the left lever to the right.

He stopped worrying about it when the knocking stopped, usually its the suspension, this time it was the boot contents
