Has anyone experienced problems with the rear boot handle/latch sticking or not opening? Remote fob opens the locks on the doors but sometimes the boot latch doesn't do anything when pulled, have to press the lock and unlock button on the fob sometimes, a bit strange....

It's happened to me a couple of times, i think mine is when the flappy paddle handle under the number plate doesn't drop back into position when closed previously :roll:
thanks baltisalty1979 - good to know I'm not the only one....guessing there's no miracle cure?

Haven't found one myself, i just do the same as you...lock and unlock again usually does the trick, i don't tend to use the boot a great deal usually put the odd bag of shopping on the back seat, maybe why it tends to stick..lack of use?

Is this not a job for WD 40?
If you take the handle out (10 min job) you will probably find its corroded on the inside as water gets to it. The pin that allows it to move seizes up through rust.

I had to replace mine, cost about £30 for the handle which I fitted myself.

Cheers Stuart. :thumbs:
