Re: Boot locking mechanism replacement / Repair

Glad I found this. Punto tailgate latch failed "open" as we were about to leave in another car for 600 mile trip. Had to back Punto tight against wall and fit wheel clamp for security while we were away.
Followed your instructions on return and managed to free sticky solenoid sufficiently to latch and lock tailgate.
New Fiat lock now on its way from Germany at half the price of second hand ones in UK.

Re: Boot locking mechanism replacement / Repair

Thanks for the guide. I've completed this job myself this weekend. My old lock was well corroded, so I replaced it with a new unit. Also needed to replace the fuse as it had blown.

For reference the fuse is a 15AMP in the dashboard fusebox. I have the glovebox fusebox and the fuse in number 6.

Re: Boot locking mechanism replacement / Repair

Are the non-genuine replacement locks worth anything, or do I have to get a "ricambi" one?
