Hi on my brothers A3 2005 3dr the boot suddenly stopped shutting. We tried shutting it gently/hard nothing will close it. When the boot is open and pressing the boot release on the number plate plinth the motor is not making any noises. The same when pressing the boot release switch on the key fob (both keys tried no to avail) one thing my brother noticed was the rear wiper not working when the boot is open after the boot stopped shutting or is this normal? He knows not to use the rear washer jet as we suspected a split at the start of the year! Its been fine and out of the sudden stopped closing.
Please help as I could not find many helpful threads for this issue (not that common?)
Diy fix or take it to the bodyshop?
