      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Have a problem with the boot keep unlocking itself randomly (mostly when starting the car), so after some research (and it being looked at during service) the problem is water in the switch below the Ford logo. I know what needs replacing roughly, but I cannot get access to it. The problem is getting the interior cover off the boot lid. I took the screws out of the two side panels (which hold up the shelf) and managed to yank them off. I then removed the screw in the inside handle for the boot, but I can't for the life of me get the plastic cover off the boot lid. Tried pulling it via the handle, nothing. Tried going round it prising it off with a tool but nothing. I got maybe 1 or 2 clips undone at the most, but they ended up going back in! Spent about an hour and got nowhere with it :( I'd imagine it's not too bad if you can get a grip on the thing to just pull it straight off, but apart from the handle there doesn't seem to be anywhere else to hold it. Any tips at all? Or is there a video of how to do it? Thanks
