Cant Open Boot

Hi everyone,

Im new to this forum and new to BMW ownership

I have just got a L reg BMW 520i SE but I am unable to open the boot at all. When I turn the key in the boot lock anti-clockwise it does seem to make a mechanical noise.

Am I missing something like a button or lever to push/pull?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I feel like a right numpty at the minute.

Thanks in advance.

After you turn the key, do you try pushing the lock itself as a button? This is how the boot on my E30 opens.

Like I said complete numpty. Worked straight away, my boot is now open.

Thanks for your quick reply, really appreciate it.

I can stop worrying now.
