Coupe boot lock

Perhaps it is not locked. I had a problem with a door that wouldn't open although it wasn't locked. It was because the lock was out of alignment. Moving the door vertically at the same time as pulling the lever, it opened. Try pushing the boot lid to one side while pressing the plate. Of course I do...

Coupe boot lock

Grand rassemblement à Golfe-Juan (06)

A gesture by the organisers, the mairie of Golfe-Juan are very jealous of their Théatre de la Mer.
Curiously, they didn't put one under Vert Soleil :lol:

Springs are as I found them (and same both sides) I wondered what the extended bit was for :roll:
