No Emergancy boot release when lock is defective and boot lid is shut. (X type saloon 2002 UK spec)
2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.1 V6 saloon

When the boot lock is broken and will not unlock the boot lid, there is no internal access to the mechanism to manually release it.
The model I have has a full length bulkhead between boot and passenger compartment. There is no external key hole on the boot lid that I can see, either under the letter U in the Jaguar chrome trim, or behind the licence plate
Please Help.

Don't know the answer but it can be resolved .

" In desperation I went to my local Jag main dealer

( Hatfields on Sefton St Liverpool). They said they could get into the boot without causing damage, but couldn't book me in until Friday. But give them credit they referred me to a small jag specialist garage in north Liverpool. I went straight there. They were really helpful. left the car with them for an hour while I scoffed a fry up in a local cafe. They got on by dismantling the rear seats somehow. They traced the fault to a broken wire in the harness where it leaves the body and enters the boot lid (it's covered by plastic corrugated flexible tube). Job done £40 "
