2001 boxster S rear trunk won't open some times


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


On my 2001 Boxster S, the rear trunk won't open sometimes. It does work when the car is cold, but if I drive for 20-30 miles and try to open the trunk it does not work. Seems to me that when engine is hot the rear trunk stops working.


I have read on forums about the manual release. But, that would be a workaround and only in case of emergency.


I can hear the clicks when trying to open it with the trunk switch or thru the key, but it does not release the latch.



Any thoughts?

Sound like either the rear trunk electric latch is misadjusted or may need lubrication.
