When I press the remote button, the boot unlocks OK, but doesnt open. I have to find something on the boot to "get hold off" to lift it open. I guess it should open on its own . Do I need to change the two telescopic units , or can they be oiled or something?
Many thanks

That is how they are supposed to be :thumbsup

You wouldn't want it opening in a multi storey car park :eek

As Ronnie says, I think that is correct behaviour..

I believe they are meant to just pop up so the lock is unlocked but the boot lid hasnt actually opened fully.

You could always have some stronger hydraulic units fitted if you really want it to power open on button press.

is there no where to grip the boot lid to lift it with?

Nope Boostist, no handle...so I use the roundel badge lever as the grip. On the odd occasion, I use the tail end of the wiper, especially if the back is filthy :D...wiper will probably come off in my hand one day :rofl.
