I have a 2007 Volkswagen Jetta and the key is very temperamental. Sometimes the boot opens, but generally not. I can’t find a manual way of opening it.

There should be a manual external boot release — on an 07 Jetta it’s a rubberised switch, up under the VW logo and above the number plate. If that’s not working then it could explain why the key fob release is being inconsistent. Either way, a visit to your Volkswagen dealer is probably in order. It may just be that the battery in the key needs replacing, but you may need a new key, or at worst a replacement boot release.
