    I have an annoying problem with my avant tailgate lock.Sometimes the boot will unlock normally along with the rest of the car using the remote fob and other times i have to open it manually with the key.Anybody have any ideas?

    Sounds like the solenoid is on it's way out. I had the same problem with my boot on my convertible.

    Might not be the solenoid, the Avants have problems with the squirter leaking on the boot lock wiring.

    Mine kinda does that. Sometimes it'll open when the rest of the car is unlocked. Other times I have to press and hold the tailgate release button on the fob and it pops open.

    Dead annoying in a kidnapping scenario.

    Never tried actually using the key in the keyhole though. Presume there is a keyhole hidden somewhere?

    Keyhole is up under the lip where the number plate lights are.
