Boot release, not working!

Hi Guys

For some reason my boot release isnt working on the car (2003 bugeye) just wondering if anyone have any ideas why. I can hear a click when lifting the lever, but it doesnt do annthing. I can still open the boot by using the key though. Looking at the lock itself the cable for the release seems to be loose also...

Thanks

Will

Try locking the lock with a screwdriver so that you can see it in the closed position. Get someone to pull the lever to see if it releases the locking bar. It may just need cleaning and lubricating.

I put it in the lock position and the cable seems quiet slack and the end even pops off
