Great to see an Aussie board for Froggy cars.
I have owned several over the years, a 403, a 404 converted to a flat tray ute, a lovely 71 504 and now my lady owns an 85 505 gti.
We have a problem at the moment though. We lent the car to my son some time ago and since then have not been able to open the boot! We have tried all combinations of central locking and keys in the boot lock, all to no avail. I know from the tape that came with the car that you can enable a locking mechanism to secure the boot when required. I think my son must have done this by accident and now we have no idea how to disable it.
The boot key only turns through 180 degrees and not to the point where you can't extract the key as the manual states. I have considered undoing the bolts holding the lock, with the rear seats removed but this seems a bit drastic.
Would anyone out there have any suggestions as to what we should do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
