Hi. I've got a Fiesta Mk6 with electric boot release, key fob and dashboard button both of which have stopped working. I can still get in to the boot using the key.

Looking at it when i press the button on they key to open the boot the latch moves but not enough to open it which is where i believe the problem to be!! Any suggestions to fix it would be great :)

Sounds like a stuck solenoid or jammed mechanism.
Try blasting it with WD40 and if that doesn't help get a replacement mechanism off eBay, they're cheap and easy to replace.

Spray around the catch and into any pivots or pins.

Right so took interior boot panel off and deffinatley the solenoid thats the problem. Its moving but not enough to unlock the boot. Sprayed with wd40 still doesnt work. Is there anything that can be done to it or do i need to get a new one and replace it.

Solenoids have microswitches, springs and actuator motors that are fiddly beyond belief.
Tbh replacing the whole unit will be far easier, there should be some good second hand units available on eBay.

Ahh thats not the bit I'm on about. I am actually on about the mechanism that makes it move. Looks like the one in the picture.

Ah I get you now.

You meant the lock actuator (sometimes called a pop motor).

i'll continue looking for you.

Finis code is the part number for Ford, price is in Euros but can't confirm the price accuracy.

Actuators tend to be tricky devils, if the motor is not working properly it's usually something shorted or burnt out.
Found one cheaper than from a Dealers parts counter for you-
