    Pop the boot trim off and then away you go, really easy, just be careful with the trim as i split mine in half nearly, im quite heavy handed lol.

    Argh i get you, i thought you meant the inside locking mechanise thats on the base of the boot lid.

    you sure its the boot handle and the blanking plug? How have you capped of the water feed to the wiper? Could be that, thats leaking.
