    Hi guys

    First post. Apologies if this has already been answered but I am using the handbook terminology to perform search, but so far I'm unsuccessful. I have a tailgate warning light on, but the boot is closed. Have oiled all of the areas.

    The problem is twofold. I have the continuous warning light and I can't get the roof down as a result.

    Appreciate any suggestions!!

    Open the boot and roll the tailgate latch fully closed with a thin screwdriver. Does the boot light go out? The switch for the boot is in the latch, so providing you have no broken cables in the boot lid wiring, a new boot latch would be a place to start.
    If the light goes out with the latch fully rolled and the boot open, maybe the lid is not shutting fully enough to complete the switch press?

    I've closed the latch with a screwdriver, but the light still stays on.
