I am having a problem with the boot lock on my 156:( . I can open it with the lever inside the car no problem, but not with the key externally. The key turns approx 45% with no real feel to it.

I have searched the forum and the only thing that might be close is the mention of a plastic cog or a cable clip?

Has anyone had any experience or give me pointers as to what i should be looking for?

Cheers guys (and gals).

lol, what an easy fix.

Just to finish this thread off (in case any one searches in the future).

I removed the trim from under the boot lid and their is a steel rod which connects to the rear of the key barrel mechanism with a plastic clip, luckily i just had to refit the steel rod into the clip, if it comes out again i will apply a little silicone sealant just to hold it in place.

The clip does look like it may snap though.

All in all took around 10 mins to fix.
Nice an easy just how i like them :D .
