Boot latch problem
Following on from my recent shunt.
For some reason, my 145 now thinks the boot is open all the time. The boot light stays on (now disconnected) and the door open warning lights up the boot. As a result, i now have to lock it with the key to bypass the alarm.
The tailgate is not damaged in any way and the slam panel still lines up properly. The catch on the door itself seems iffy. it doesn't want to click home. To get the boot to close i have to slam the door with just the right amount of pressure. Not too hard, not too soft or it will bounce back open. Both the lock and remote boot release still work perfectly.
I believe the problem is entirely with the latch. How does it work and what can i do to fix it?
