I am a returning A3 owner, recently got a 2006 2.0 FSi, S-line sportback quattro, and previously had a 2004 3.2 3dr, with an m3 inbetween, but need a 5 door as got a baby now.
So My boot release will not open on the tailgate soft tocuh handle, but it will open on the keyfob and through the internal emergency release, I pulled off the internal trim and no signs of water ingress and the washer hose is intact, though i never function tested with the trim remeoved. My question is the mircoswitch that is listed on the new units is that part of the handle assy, or part of the lock, i.e. if I was to go ahead and purchase this cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140505364512 for example would it help solve my issues.
I have had no problems with the boot close sensor, or with the central locking and the rear wiper appears to work. Any ideas suggestions or fixes are appreciated.
