    ^yes, unfortunately the much bigger problem is getting into the boot through the non-foldable backseat. The seats have to be removed and then somehow crawl through the very small hole and then somehow prise the boot open from the inside (since there is no internal latch on non US spec models) in order to be able to do the replacement.

    Loops, some say smash the rear light, some say you should not have lent it to kidnappers in the first place but really check the fuse and if you don't want to break a rear light to get at the catch then find either a local club who like Jaaaaaggggga or just bite the bullet ya cheap fuker

    ^smashing the rear light is only to get access to the internal latch - US spec only. There will be no smashing of tail lights happening. It will be backseat banditry or else I will be learning to live without a boot.

    ... just cough up loops. How can you complain about a car thats probably cost you less than $1,000 / year now or will do FFS, how you can measure a few dollars against all he memories the windscreen has given is beyond me.

    The only thing remaining in this inaccessible boot are my ratchet straps for tieing shit to the roof so I had to go to bunnings and buy a new set which now live in the back seat footwell.

    If you want to carry big bits of junk around you don't need a bogan's ute or even a trailer. You just need a 4 door saloon which does not have a sunroof and does not have one of those stupid trendy sharks-fin aerials sticking up out of the centreline of the roof.

    Never had a sunroof and never will have one.

    ^ someone was asking whether Camry or Fortuner.. the new Fortuner has a good ride, still solid at 180kmh if you can get there!

    While still no bastion of dynamic roadability, I'd rather be in the Camry at 180km/h.

    Enjoy that Buriamboy! What model do you have? I've driven a few and they are a hoot to drive. My son had a stock NB, but I'd like an unmolested NA.

    So, pound for pound, you are far better off buying the sedan ... the Mazda3.

    The CX5 is different and, IMHO, the better pick of the buys.

    I really want that CX5 above, but they even the early model a 2015-mazda-cx-5-maxx-sport-ke-series-2 is circa AUD $20,000

    And I won't spend that on a car ...
    Not much difference in the price of a CX3 and Mazda 3. There is a big difference between the 2 and CX3. I was thinking of buying my daughter a Mazda 2, ideal for a woman.

    Maybe that's what Looper is doing wrong with his Jag

    looper 19-04-2019,
    The loose wire in the loom between the body and the lid looks like the candidate as there is no noise at all from the solenoid.

    do pay attention and try and keep up at the back there balders. its not rocket science.

    you are obviously not the technician or you would know to check some things twice

    he could also check the resistance from the switch wire through the solenoid to chassis and see if there is a circuit as the solenoid is just a coil and slug - if the chassis is the return for the negative

    is the ignition required to be on for the boot release to work or does the switch have 12v on one side at all times ? and yes , multi and check if you have 12v between the switch and chassis

    Thankyou for precious advices balders.

    Well, when I said there was no noise from the solenoid I meant I could not here the normal buzzing whirr that accompanies the actuator actuating.

    I checked again and there is indeed a clicking noise when I press the release button which seemed like it might indicate the the wiring loom connection was good and the actuator was jammed or fucked.

    But the click sounded more like a mechanical click like a switch rather than an electronic mechanism operating.

    So I had the cunning idea of disconnecting the battery and listening again and the click noise is still there even with no power so it is in fact part of the button's physical mechanism making the noise so the problem could still be the wiring loom.

    I cannot test anything because access to everything including the loom is inside the boot.

    No the electronic lock system has permanent power even without the key in the ignition.

    The only way to even have a chance of getting at anything in the boot is to take out the back seat.

    You then need to persuade your GF to crawl through the tiny space that is made available as demonstrated in this youtube.



    I took Miss Mindanao out for dinner last week as I thought subjecting her to more cheesy beans would have been mean-spirited given what a good sport she had been during her lengthy and harrowing sexual ordeal.

    So she has been suitably buttered up and I will show her the youtube and then see if I can persuade her to be the chimney sweep's assistant in this delicate operation.

    Loops, i'd go easy on feeding her up else you risk making her involvement unviable.

    I think you need a little penis to buy a Fortuner.
