Broken boot/engine bay latch

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I was just wondering if anyone can help? The boot/engine bay latch on the inside drivers door of my V8 literally snapped in my hand today?! it's as if the plastic holding what I guess was a pully mechanism has snapped simply due to wear. Thus the wire/loom has sprung back inside the body. I had a look at it and tried to unscrew the plastic surround but it appears to been fixed from the inside? Has anyone any ideas how to fix this or should I get it into Lotus asap? Any help appreciated! :doc:

Before you do any damage, wait for the replies mate.


People make a hole behind the number plate to get to the release,

some go through the boot floor, some break a rear light, go in through

there and replace it. All these are to get the boot open to replace the

broken cable.

See here too:

Wait for a first hand answer on here first, there's a few that have been there.
