I have a problem. Basically when I use either the main unlock or just the boot unlock on the key fob I can hear movement but can't lift the boot. This, in fairness, has gradually gotten worse. At first I could open the boot, then occassional it would not fully dis-engage. Now it will rarely open the boot at all.
I have tried pulling all the boot trim out (removed screws, pulled out the clips) but still not been able to fully remove the bottom trim from below the rear window. I have however, been able to see the metal rod moving to the left quite freely when I use the boot lift press pad. I think the problem is that it is not moving to the left enough and therefore not fully releasing the boot. I am sure the lock isn't seized and I can open manually with the key and I have lucbricated it with loads of WD40.
My question is how do I fully remove the boot trim (bottom part and not all the trim around the top of the rear window) and also is the problem def with the Solenoid due to the fact it is working, although not enough?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
