Common problem on fiesta bud, the boot switch goes on them....usually it opens whilst driving thats the most common fault, but I would say its a new boot switch that is required

My Focus has the same prob, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I can feel and hear the micro-switch operating but I haven't got around to opening it up yet.

thats a bit of a p**s take, any idea how much one costs and is it a simple thing to replace myself or not ?

Not sure exactly how much they are.... 2010? Is it still under warranty possibly? And nah easy enough too change mate....you need too take the trim pieces off at each side of the bootlid I think...not sure if you need the side trims off..... and then continue too take the centre trim out :) 10mm nuts i think? Then on the outaide of the boot you pull off the trim with the switch in it and remove switch :)
