BOOT/TAILGATE not closing

Postby okolatsis » Fri Dec 19, 2014 8:43 pm

Hi All,

My Boot doesn't seem to close, I have been inside the boot while a friend closes it and it appears that the latch isn't locking into place.

Can anyone tell me with the BOOT/TAILGATE LOCK/LATCH UNIT from and IS200 will fit on an Altezza RS200, cant see why it wouldn't?


Thanks in advance.

Is it actually broken? If not, it might just need taking off the boot lid and looking at to check that the latch hasn't seized or just need freeing off?

Well if I push the middle of the lock with my key all the way it doesn't lock into place, it just returns to the open position. I tried the same thing with another car and when I push it up it stays into place.

Doesn't the IS200 mechanism fit ?

Im not sure to be honest. I wouldnt think they would change it between the two models but you never know!
