    ok, so it opens occasionaly when using the button by the steering wheel or the rubber button on the bootlid (where the handle is), but very occasionaly. when i use the key in the bootlid it opens fine (manually) and then when i turn the key right, the whole car locks, then when i turn it left after this, the boot whole car unlocks and the boot opens. the electronic buttons to open the boot are definitly working because they make a small noise in the fuse box and the fuses are fine.

    my question is which part do i need to replace, there is a black plastic box where the latch is on the bootlid with wires going in to it, and then there is the metal unit behind the keyhole on the bootlid with wires going in to it.

    thanks

    Have you checked the wiring for the tailgate where it comes out of the vehicle body for damaged wires?? Sometimes these become damaged due to age and fatigue and may prevent certain features from functioning correctly
