    im after a boot catch for my S4, i have the boot symbol showing up all the time on my DIS so want to put a new one on as i think its knackered

    does anyone know where the best place to get one from?

    is it dealer only part and how much roughly are we talking?

    sounds like they've given you the lock, rather than just the switch

    The switch is part number 8D5959489 and the lock is part number 8L0827505F

    sorted lol i cancelled the order today and just ordered the switch, i had a funny feeling that buying the whole thing wouldn work without the switch, switch cost me £9 so ill be getting most of the £27 refunded on friday.

    mark is it hard to change the switch?
