One month ago, I purchased a used 2004 New Beetle Turbo S Convertible and tried to familiarize myself with all of its gadgets. A problem happened with the locking mechanism on the center-console compartment. The lid does not open anymore and with the wheel anti-theft adapter locked inside, it could become critical issue. First, I tried out the lid lock while the lid was open. No problem, but after having closed the lid again and turned the key, the lock did not release the mechanism. What could be done - without destroying the lock ? Thank you for your reply.
