    Boot switch is in the boot catch... common problem on these... I took mine off, cleaned with brake cleaner and then sprayed WD40 in... worked for 6 months but is starting to go funny again... a more permanent fix is to replace it tbh but I can live with spraying WD40 in every now and then...

    On mine I removed the boot trim panel then after unclipping the actuator rods for the boot lock and the central locking motor it just unbolts... there maybe slight differences pre facelift but I wouldn't have thought enough thats its a different job...
