Hi
The boot on my vauxhall astra will not open. When using the electronic key to open all the doors, each one, front and back operate but the boot will still not open when you lift the handle. Can anyone help before i have to put the car into a garage. I can't find a release handle if it actually exists.

try using the key,on some cars if you turn the lock on the rear hatch it stops the hatch from opening using the remote fob.

hi,
i'd crawl into my boot and take the panel off the inside of the boot and that should let you in at the lock mechanism from the inside to flip the lock open yourself. I've done this on lots of cars, can't guarntee will be ok for your astra..
