I own a 166 2.0 TS on 2001 (Y) plate and I have recently come to my car and found the boot won't pop open from the key.
Usualy if the remote is playing up, which it does (typical italian electrics) then I simply use the button in the glove compartment. This doesnt work either now so I am forced to twist the key in the lock on the boot.
I dont think there is anything wrong with the key fob or the fuses, anyone ever had their boot pop latch ever go? Regardless of key or glove comp button there is an audiable "clunk" when it pops and boot comes up. Not doing it now.
Any help would be appriciated guys and gals :/
