    BMW topbox will not release latch

    Hi Folks,

    I have an odd problem, my BMW top box will unlock to open the topbox but it will not pop out the release handle to allow me to put the topbox back onto the XR.

    Has anyone had this problem and if so did you figure out a solution.

    Thanks.

    Goodbob.

    P.S. I did a forum Search first but I found nothing.

    Mine did the same, I just soaked it in WD 40 overnight and it was fine next day, crap gets in the mechanism.

    I got it sorted. Turns out the lock was jammed. My motorrad dealer freed it up.
