• Hello,

    got the trunk lid open, ultimately after looking at the lock on my 91, the other one was installed yes.

    So, the lock can be easily unlocked from the inside, in which you insert a slotted screwdriver between the lid and the rear wall, so in the gap between the lid lock lower part and the lid lock and the lock pin with it reindrückt and unlock the lid.

    The photos show how to do it, but think of the lid closed.

    Thanks for your efforts and advice!

  • Moin,

    nice that it still worked out with the opening :thumb:

    You can see here the upcoming problem ...the pus-yellowish nylon insert in the lower tailgate lock

    starts to crumble, is most likely already soft-sticky.

    Leads to constant rattling noises and difficulties in closing/unlocking the tailgate.

    So it should look, holds again the next 30 years :)

    If interested just write to me --> start conversation

    An insert 27€ instead of well over 100€ for a new lock....and is changed in just 5min :thumb:

  • I mean you can see a nice long crack at the top of the tailgate lock. Is the typical problem that has already been addressed. Even more common on the GTS, due to the heavier GRP spoiler.

    New upper part or a used one, otherwise no alternatives.

    The part is made of zinc die casting, welding/gluing or similar not possible or disproportionate effort.

  • I have a question about unlocking the tailgate. In my case, the tailgate does not open when it is hot outside. The engine turns but the tailgate does not open. Is this due to the cylindrical pin or an obsolete insert, which is now available from Tommy?

    PS: I would have written to Tommy personally but where do I start a private conversation? :lol:

  • Hi,

    the white cylindrical plug never breaks .

    The symptom described is typical of old soft disintegrating plastic inserts.

    How to start a conversation :

    Go directly to a user name with the mouse.

    After 1sec a window opens.

    Click on the speech bubbles at the very bottom right - and you're done :)

  • Moin

    First install the insert from Thommy.

    If it doesn't work then you can "pimp" the probably worn actuating cam with small cable ties

    There are corresponding threads here and on Rennlist.

    Worked for me.

    Just don't change too much at once.

    Greetings and good luck
