Hi, my boot has 1 cm of space between the seals on the boot, i loosened the 2 10mm bolts on the lock and moved it all the way up and its still the same, all the way down and it wont lock the boot at all. any tips?
If that looks ok, look at the corners of the boot lid, you'll see a small rubber stop at each corner.
They look solid but in fact are helically cut. That means you can wind then in and out.
So, take the lock mechanism out of the equation by moving it to its lowest position, lubricate the rubbers stops ( washing up liquid is a good rubber lube ) and wind them in/out until the boot lid sits where you want it to be.
Update: its not the bumpstop, it wont even touch the bumpstop on the one side. the lock up or down does not change anything either. im out of ideas. its like the rubber seal does not close on each other.
