Not Happy 159 sport wagon boot and tail gate interior lights

I have a problem in that the rear boot interior lights do not come on and neither does the red warning light on the inside of the boot lid. I have looked for switch but cant find one and can't see what fuse looks after these lights ..none seen blown and cant find a wiring diagram anywhere. Is there a relay that controls these

Also the drivers side door mirror locks in to far and i can get the adjustment right . Can the mirror rachet stop be moved so it locks further out?

The boot lights failing to come on might be due to a faulty microswitch in the boot lock, and not the fuse at all (I don't know which fuse, either). Open the boot up, take a screwdriver or pen, insert it into the lock and see if you can gently push the microswitch. It's the only way I can make the boot lights come on. I'll get the garage to look at it next time I take the motor in for a service. I've a sportwagon (without the badge-press function) but I think the mechanism is the same.
Can't help with the wing mirror. Good luck, anyhow.

If the mirror is not folding out all the way it prob just needs a bit of duck oil or WD40 spraying around the pivot.
