Hey Scotty, My mom has a 2004 Volkswagen Golf Mk4 v16 estate and for a few days I've been unable to open the boot(except for manually lifting the lever from the inside. From the factory this car has 2 ways of opening the trunk, one way is to do it with a key (Which triggers a mechanism that pulls the lever up) and with a button placed above the registration plate (Which triggers a motor, that opens the trunk. The key mechanism broke ages ago, so the only way to open it was to use the button, but it doesn't work anymore. I have testes the button with a multi meter, and it appears to be working fine. I have also tested if the engine pushing the lever is getting any voltage and no, it's not getting anything. Do you have any idea where i can look to solve this problem?
Also, do you know where to look for a servicing book of this car? I've looked through Ebay and Amazon with no results.
