Hi all,

I read a while back about somebody else having this problem and the advice given was that it was probably caused by water coming into contact with the micro switch.

So my question is this - Is it just a case of pulling the rubber membrane off and spraying some wd40 over the micro switch or do you have to remove the cover on the inside of the tail gate to get at it.

I did pull the rubber away a small amount to have a look and I got the distinct impression that it might be a tricky little
to get back into place.

Any thoughts and or advice appreciated.

Cheers

If you pull the rubber off, it's a pig to re-fit. Best to try and get to it from inside. Removing the boot trim's a doddle and you should be able to see if there's water in there and apply the necessary WD40. Presume you can plip the boot with the key?
