Orlando 2.0 deisal 2011
Can not open boot tailgate, release button doesn't always work could take 2 t0.6 goes before release is there any ideas were I start
Thanks for advice wiil have a goStart with the basics.
I didnt have an Orlando but believe this is electronically operated. Have you checked for lose or corroded fuse in fuse holder?
What other basics have you tried such as has the catch plate moved slightly out of alignment. What about a light film of lubrication on the catch.
I had the same issue, I purchased a vauxhall insignia tailgate boot switch repair kit off ebay for around £7……its a bit of a fiddle to swop the switches over…but worth the effort.Can not open boot tailgate, release button doesn't always work could take 2 t0.6 goes before release is there any ideas were I start
Ha…always the way…..The replacement I got just has 2 long wires attached to the switch, so I could cut and join the wires at a convenient point…..pretty sure I found a Vid on youtube.Haha how strange, my Orlando 2012 has just started with the boot switch being temperamental 😬
If at all possible I’d hugely appreciate any update once you’ve attempted it - I could take it to my mechanic, but I’ve vowed to try and be more competent with this stuff 😬😂Ha…always the way…..The replacement I got just has 2 long wires attached to the switch, so I could cut and join the wires at a convenient point…..pretty sure I found a Vid on youtube.
It definitely feels like the switch, the opening closing is fine. The switch however doesn’t always respond when you depress it! Luckily my wife is a locksmith (Not an auto locksmith though) so I’ll definitely be getting her advice and help if I go the self fix route 😊Do keep in mind that boot catches (especially the receiving catch) can work lose on the securing bolt(s) due to the constant 'thump' when closing, and if knocked just slightly out of alignment it will not close/lock/open correctly. Just do the positional check and the electrical check before purchasing a part which may not be necessary.
