Yes, I mean the latch. When the car is unlocked, the boot doesn't open using the latch. The only way to get in is to press the key fob, boot button. Sometimes that has to be pressed whilst trying to open the latch.
It's a warrantyjob onyour car- there is a microswitch that operates the boot mechanism and it gets water in it and fails. I'm surprised yours has failed so early though.
Some people with cars out of warranty and who don't want to spend money have managed to fix the problem by taking the switch out - drying it out with a hairdryer, sealing it up with bath sealant and refitting it to the car.
