    got in my car half an hour ago, started it up and display showed boot open... Thought it was odd as I've not been in there for a while, just been driving for 20 mins pulled up and heard clicking noises coming from the boot, then dash displayed boot open again, got out and it was open, after lifting it up fully I could hear the mechanism/motor working away non stop, so I closed it and it just opened again??? After about 5 attempts it's stayed in closed position but I'm guessing it will pop open before long? Anybody had this problem or suggest anything reasons why it's happening? Thanks

    My brother had this on a b5 estate it turned out to be water in the boot release switch
