Trunk/Boot opening switch
I have recently purchased a 2003 focus estate/wagon it has a couple of issues one of which is the switch that opens the trunk on the exterior of the trunk.
I took the interior panel off the trunk today and it was obvious why it doesn't work it wasn't plugged in! I tried to unbolt the plastic exterior panel that houses the lock, number plate lights and the switch but the first bold sheared right off as soon as I tried to turn it.
I havent gone any further because I dont want to shear all the bolts and not be able to put it back on! Can i put new bolts in once I have it off or would i need an entire new unit?
