Boot lock
« on: 25 May 2014, 22:24 »
Quick question, changing my bootlid and was wondering if I don't change the lock straight away will the boot still lock/unlock with the central locking??

boot lock is only a few screws to move, however yes it will still work as the solenoid will just clip into place

It's been a bit if a nightmare, the new boot I got didn't have any of the central locking bits... Had to swap it all over including the wiring but still doesn't seem to work

cables split at rubber boots maybe (not completely but not always making fill contact) or actuator motor siezed ( easy fix really)
