My boot doesn't seem to lock when I push the remote button what so ever. Also, I can't seem to budge the cover on the key barrel on the boot lock. My key doesn't open the door using the key barrel on the driver's side either. Had the car scanned for faults and nothing seams to come up on VAGCOM. Help!

the rear screen wash pipe leaks onto the mechanism for the rear boot lock, you need to get in the boot from the rear seats and if you look on the boot latch there should be a safety latch you can flick with a small screwdriver to get the boot open. then you need to remove the interior boot trim and get a load of wd40 or similar, spray it on the mechanism and move it with your hand. spray some in the barrel and with a bit of elbow grease you should be able to get it working again, this happened to me not so long ago. if its completely gone you may need to check the electrical connector for the boot lock solenoid for corrosion as you may need a new one.
