I've got a Aygo x cite 15 plate 

my boot is stuck closed 

the lock mechanism is working but the button will not open it ... the button has no resistance in it 

I've got to take it in to be checked... will this be under warranty???

Aygo X-pression 5dr 1.0 2015: I've just got the very same problem. Phoned my dealer and got it booked in to be "looked at" tomorrow. It MUST be covered in the 5-year warranty, mustn't it? I'll keep you updated as to what they say.....

Just to update what happened with mine 

they checked it then said it needed to be booked in to change lock 

was done in under a hour ... under warranty... they also did a full check of the car for free ... I got a print out like you get when it's serviced 

hope yours is sorted soon 😺

Same thing happened on my C1 flair last week, over the pass month its been getting stiffer and stiffer to the point where there was no resistance with the boot failing to open despite central locking working as normal.

Problem is a fault with the metal paddle which engages with plastic barrel part of the mechanism, its misalligned which goes worst over time as you're having to apply more force to open the boot to the point it's bent out of line of the plastic barrel.

I was able to fix it in 10-20mins by bending the paddle back into its level position, no longer needs any force to open.  Boot can be opened from the inside by flicking the black latch top right of the locking point. (If you're in warranty get them to fix it.)

Video I took after I fixed it of my lock working normally

Interestingly I don’t have a boot button and It’s totally electronic to open. There is a black button in its place to lock/unlock the car, and to open the boot you press a button under the little plastic boot handle

button on mine just went, now got no friction or pressure apart from the spring return!!

i assume its covered under the Toyota 5 year warranty??

or is there a simple fix so i can get it going again.

love the button, must of been part of the key less entry/start stop upgrade.

got a daft question how does the cover come off??

i managed to get the 4 black pins out but the cover still seems stuck on top edge.

didnt want to force it as i assume i can get it fixed under warranty

It's being held there by the boot door it's self.  Get your hand up behind the plastic cover and unlatch the door, should be a switch at the highest point that you can flick to unlatch.

thanks all, i think i will give Mr T the chance to fix it if i can get it in this week.

was hoping it was something fairly easy,  maybe it is when the car is not 30 plus degrees inside and your hanging upside down off you back seat 🙂

Out of warranty any ideas what Toyota charge

 

I would query any price  ...given that it’s a common fault , 

this was my original post ... I’ve still got the car and had no further issues with the boot after the fix

Its alot easier to "adjust" it correctly if you take it out..its easy to remove ..if you want to replace it then the part cost me £23.75 including VAT ,genuine part from the dealer (Citroen C1 2014) its the same part in an Aygo..
