    I have a 2000 Avant quattro which has developed a bit of rust next to one of the electric opening buttons on the tailgate.
    The little panel effected (which houses the boot lock and opening buttons) looks like it is separate from the rest of the boot, and might be a stand alone part.

    Does anyone know if this panel (just above the rear number plate) comes off, and can be replaced without having to change the whole boot lid?

    thanks
