Boot keeps popping open! Solved

Has anyone else ever had the boot solenoid keep popping the boot lid without you actually touching it.
The answer is basically the release button glovebox illumination unit.
Open the glovebox enough to release the two cords that are hooked into the lid then lower the glovebo
So the light unit can come out.
Disconnect the plug and remove the green lens then the bulb.
You will see two moulded catches that hold the boot release button assy in remove the assy.
You will need a small screwdriver to allow the plunger out of the smaller assy.
Then stretch the spring a little and reasemble no more pinging boot lid.
