Hi All,

I hope someone can help me please?
The boot lock cylinder will not unlock the boot lid.
I would like to remove it and clean it up or replace it (whatever is needed).
I am stuck on how to actually remove the cylinder, the rest is easy enough.
Is there a nut I am missing or is it just a simple case of turning the cylinder 90 degrees and it will wiggle out?
Thanks for you time.

Sorry, should have said the car is a 2009 2.0TFSI convertable.

You will need to remove the liner on the rear of the boot lid and access it through there. The small section that holds the plate lights, lock cylinder and opening handle is housed as one piece and once that is removed then you can get to the cylinder. Dont forget to remove the rear actuating bars attached to the rear of the cylinder

Hi Morski,

Thanks for the very fast answer.
I have undone all of the boot lid liner, all four of the 10mm nuts from the ali holders over the number plate lights and the 2x 10mm's holding the plastic cover over the lock cylinder.
It's removing the actual cylinder barrel I am struggling with.
Any advice on getting the cylinder out please?
Thanks again

I checked on fleabay and found this for the a5 cab lock a5 cab lock and looks like there is another bolts/nuts holding the cylinder on from the rear.
