Boot metal tab (Spider)
Anyone else had a problem with the metal tab that's part of the boot lock?
Mine seems to stick in the middle position (as shown in the pic) every now and again, I need a screwdriver to prise it across to the far right where it should be.
If it's in the middle the boot won't close.
I think water ingress is the problem - the trim on the underside of the boot lid is always wet through, as though water is somehow bypassing the thick rubber seal that surrounds the top of the boot area.
I've given the lock mechanism a good spray with GT85, but not convinced it's helped.
