    Anyone ever changed a boot lid?

    Hi guys,

    Just wondered if anyone has had to remove their boot lid before? I have a dent and 2 creases in mine that the dent repair people say will need to be done at a body shop due to the type of damage. I've found a perfect boot lid in the right colour on eBay for probably half the price of a repair and spray job. I know I'll need to swap over my boot lock and lining etc. but I just wondered how easy it is to remove and fit a boot lid?

    Any advice welcome.

    Not done it on a 8P but others.

    It's not a bad job but I would recommend getting a mate to help you.

    Not sure if the cables got plugs at the car end to separate the cables from the boot and the body, if they don't, I would recommend getting some sort of long stiff plastic to help feed the cables from the body into the boot.
