    Problem with opening boot

    Couple days ago, suddenly found I couldn't open the boot any other way than with remote.
    When I open the car I can hear a wee motor or something whirring away near the boot for a lot longer than it used to.
    Obviously somethings screwed. Can anyone identify what? (and provide a nice easy cheap fix )

    Well it has a microswitch on the boot if its the facelift 01 onwards, so this can go faulty, when you touch the microswitch does it make the very quiet click & the motor makes the noise, if you dont hear the microswitch click on touch then its either a new microswitch or full lock, the boot release on remote doesnt use the microswitch just the motor so seems to point directly to the switch, does show in etka a switch part so might be able to replace this seperately, check with Audi part number : 8D9 959 489 or the whole lock is 8D9 827 565 H, but see if microswitch is working 1st.

    In ETKA under A3 2002 image 827-40 parts 41 & 44 as some parts guys are thick.
