I cant find any other posts relating to this, I bought a 2009 A3 convertible recently, and just my luck, after a few days I had a warning on the dashboard that all of the boot mounted lights were broken, and I found I could only open the boot with the key (the electronic lock was previously fine.) After replacing all of the "broken" lights and finding they still didn't work, I've had a bit of a look around, and found that one of the wires that run inside a black rubber protector was totally broken (I'm guessing it got caught in the hinge?) I'm not really technically minded, but I've managed to patch up the wire, albeit outside of the protective sleeve, and it all now works fine. My questions are, has anyone had any experience of this sort of problem? (I've found a few results via Google relating to older models.) And how much should I be looking at to have it repaired?
Thanks in advance,
