Boot lock / catch needed

Post by bendillon on Sun Jun 12, 2016 2:29 pm

I went to open my boot the other day, all fine. Went to close it... nope, doesn't catch... took the catch off, seems it's buggered, and no amount of grease can bring it back to life!

Anyone got one kicking around? without it I've got a rather a lot of ventilation in the rear! I think that they are all the same, but if not, then I have a 1998 1.3 16 valve Hijet.

Looks like this, if you couldn't understand what I'm talking about:

If you wash them out with LOADS of WD-40 they usually come back to life. Keep spraying them and activating the latch with a screw driver.
