  1. EPB brakes did not release when I started one morning at home. Fuse is OK. Procedure to release EPB for service has no effect so both rear wheels still locked tight. How can I release brakes manually so that I can move car and possibly drive it to my local garage? Alternatively get it towed in. Is it possible to force the pads away from wheel manually and drive car? Or remove whole rear brake assembly both rides and at least move the car so that it can be towed?
  2. Thanks to iantt who provided the following solution. Cut away a flap at the rear of the plastic cover seen on the floor of the boot. The edge of the latch is visible either through a slot or at the back (towards the front of the car) of the steel plate. Pry this to the right and the latch pops. No need to cut the boot trim, which at least on my model has no attachment screws ( someone else told there were), just clips all round requiring brute force and ignorance to separate it from the door.

  3. Thanks for letting me know, Brian H. I found the answer - I will check the MkIII section Chris
  4. Perhaps I am doing something wrong as I have had no response? Please help. It's a LHD Mk III Ghia. Everything works fine except the tailgate will not open. The tailgate has a small push button that should operate the boot release but does nothing; makes no sound locking or unlocking using the buttons on the key. So, reviewing all the previous post it seems like an electrical problem. I am unable to remove the trim cover from inside the tailgate cover and although I can separate the cover at the top edge below the window cannot reach down to the the tailgate latch mechanism. Unless anyone
  5. All doors and filler cap OK but boot will not open/unlock. There is no keyhole - just electrically unlocked with remote. I have read all the existing responses for this problem. Have pulled cover partly off but even with crow bar cannot get enough space to get arm in. I did manage to break most of the clips in my efforts. Boot cover has cut outs each side for rear bulb replacement but I cannot reach in. There is rectangular lump in bottom of cover below right hand rear light cover (left as you face back from the inside) that presumably covers some device. Happy to cut a hole in the cover
