yeh i got dis... when i changed boot catch i noticed some little sensor/switch which looked a little corroded (as was boot catch). since then i been wondering what its for. do you have a "door locked" light too? as i had to lock my car from inside to keep boot closed. (before i fixed catch) On ignition i notice a orange warning light. a little car with a key going through it. thinking the sensor/switch thingy in the boot catch could be related??

Mine has one but it doesn't work when the boot light decides not to work. Common problem is the rear wash leaks into the boot catch and stops it working. Does your boot light work?

yep boot light works.. AHHHHH thats what that little switch mite be in the boot catch??? seems a strange place to put it??

And yes, when i got the car the rear wiper washer did not work. the boot catch was mullerd to, so replaced that and cleaned up the damamge the water caused. Still dont bloddy work tho!!! lol
