Hi mate, welcome to AO

Have a look through the GTV lounge to see if anyone has had the same problem. If not, try posting there too

Re: Help please!

hi and welcome. Is the locking catch loose and moved out of place.

Does the boot lid go all the way down into place but just dose not lock or does it feel like there is something stoping it going down.

Also oil it well it may be stuck ect.

Re: Help please!

Check to see that the catch hasn't accidentally 'shut' itself. It is possible to close the catch with the boot open - it will thud against the striker while the boot stands some distance from it's seal, usually operating the button/key/why should open it again. Lubricate it anyway.
