896 2
Replacing the aerial today left the boot open went indoors to get myself a beer (not relevant I know) and a gust of wind blew the boot down only now when I close the boot the lock wont engage the lock operates with the key but that's it!

Any ideas?

It may have moved the lock mechanism which would require an adjustment back to where it was.

Remove the boot liner/carpet on the rear wall. This will give access to the lock ( IIRC ). 2 10mm bolts will slacken the mechanism and you can then slide it up a mm or two. Nip it up and test the lid. Repeat as necessary and when good, tighten the bolts down.
