Dumb Question Of The Day.....Opening Elise Trunk WITH the Key?
Okay, just got my new to me 2008 Lotus Elise SC. The manuals and extra key are being shipped so I can't reference that.
I searched with google and the site search engine....and couldn't find the answer to this question.
How do you open the rear engine cover/boot lid WITH the key?
Do I have to press one of the 3 key fob buttons first, or in a certain order or what? Just turning the key results in a click noise, but it doesn't unlock. It feels like a short throw, like something is keeping it from turning all the way?
When I searched, all I found was what to do if you don't have the key, or if you lock the key/fob in the trunk. I read through 5 threads. I tried the rubber spatula and prying with a towel against the body and a large flathead.....people said they could get their hands in to pull the emergency release lever, but I didn't get it high enough to even slide a coat hanger in and I don't know where the release is even located having never opened the lid myself (dealer opened it when I test drove on Monday and packed the soft top in the boot before shipment). Not to mention I was afraid of screwing something up.
I couldn't even check the oil/coolant levels before driving it and I'd really like to do an oil change at this point, but can't open the stupid deck lid.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
