Step 1: Remove Interior Trim
For demonstration purposes only this repair is
carried out on the bench, this repair can be carried out in situe on the vehicle.
Open your boot and remove your parcel shelf. Using a T20 Torx screwdriver unscrew the 3 (sometimes 4) screws holding the interior trim in place. On some models there may be additional screws near the wiper motor. Pull firmly around the edges to remove the trim.
Step 2: Remove Lock Mechanism
Once the trim is removed you will be able to see the boot lock as shown. Unlpug the electrical connector. Remove the 2 bolts (sometimes 1 bolt) holding the lock in place. You will now be able to pull the boot lock out of situe. Remove the locking lever by sliding it in to the L Shape channel of the boot lock and twisting slightly.
Step 3: Fit Button
Position the spring in the centre of the rear of the button and push in to the boot lock.
Compress button so that the longest protuberance from the button appears at the rear of the boot lock. Push the E-Ring in to the groove in the protuberance (this will be tight fit). Using the pliers crimp the E-Ring in place (do not apply too much pressure, crimp lightly and in small increments). Test the button functionality; if not correct re-adjust the E-Ring and retry.
Refit the boot lock making sure you reattach the locking lever and the electrical connector. Refit bolts and test the functionality of the button. Once satisfied the button operates correctly; refit the boot trim and enjoy being able to use your boot again!
