The tailgate on my 2001 318 touring won't unlock with the central locking and so the only way to open it is with the emergency release from inside which is really frustrating. Please help

I had this on my E36. I had to remove the trim on the inside that conceals the lock with the tailgate shut. Tricky but possible with a little brute persuasion:hihi

I found that the locking mechanism was sticking and will probably require a replacement as lubing it up only cured it for a couple of open/closes:frown
