when u push the button does the trunk open backwards and the top tries to go down but struggles? if it does which mine is starting to do that its probably the hydraulic pump is low on fluid it shouldnt cost that much to fix

You can manually "force" oppen it by pulling the steel wire lokated in the trunk.

more likely, one of 3 micro switches in the boot{£15 each} rather than a big fault
