Unhappy Trunk issues

Hello everyone,

I own a 2006 9-7x 5.3 and it's maybe the only one in France

It's a wonderful car but unfortunately since last weeks, I can't open my trunk, only the glasses above it...

Is someone already had the same problem ? And how did you fix it ?

Thank you very much.

PS: sorry if my english isn't very good

Had this problem a few weeks ago. Crawl inside to the trunk area and you will see a round plastic cap located on lower area of the lift gate cover. Remove that cap. With your finger pull the small metal lever to the right. You will know you've pulled once it clicks. Open...... Spray lube same. Replace cap.

Once you have it open by using Derri's method, also have a look at the locking mechanism. I had a small piece of paper jam into mine and that made it difficult to open.
