    Avant Boot Sensor Problems

    Hi all,
    Am new to the site and hope you guys can help please!

    I have a 2000 2.8V6Q avant, and noticed a while ago that the boot light seemed to be coming on and off for no reason whilst driving. Now when starting up, I quite frequently get a warning on the driver information system that the boot is open when it is properly closed.

    Whilst this and the light's behaviour seems clearly linked to the boot sensor, I don't know how to resolve. Any ideas please??

    thanks

    Forgot to add, the rear wiper and washer jet are both working fine, with no apparent leaks

    Try taking the boot lock out and just drying the microswitch as water may have escaped a little from the rear washer hose.

    The micro switches often fail/snap, you will need a new lock if that is the case. They are about 30 quid from a dealers.
    Mine is exactly the same, I need to get round to it too!

    Thanks!
    Do you know whether I can remove the boot trim without breaking the clips, or do I need to get new clips first?

    Mine did the same, think it was after getting the car washed with a big pressure washer, water in the rear microswitch, has dried out and is fine again.
