Dead battery boot wont open
« on: September 20, 2017, 07:42:16 am »
So I'm charging my battery (out of car) which was in the boot. The boot will now not open, I'm guessing because of no power.

Is there a simple tip to getting it open.  It's going to be a pain trying to install battery to the boot via the back doors.

I assume you are driving a R32
get in from the back door, open the flip in the middle of the tailgate, then you can unlock the boot

or

connect your jump starter to the jump start terminal behind the air box and negative to the engine
