Boot Release Button Not Working

Hi all

hope you can help. the boot release button on the car does not seem to release the boot. it opens it slightly but it does not let you pull the boot

anyone know what the problem may be?

You can dismantle and clean the switch behind the rubber bit on the tailgate. In my experience it fixed the problem for a very short time.

Just use the key! Stops you getting annoyed.

If you're feeling keen, try the advice on the second page of this thread:

A bit tedious, but it worked for me!
