Boot lid (Saloon models) - removal and refitting
1 Open the boot lid, and place protective covers (old rags or cardboard) beneath the corners of the lid, and over the rear wings to prevent damage to the paintwork.
2 Where applicable, disconnect the wiring from the lock solenoid and “boot lid ajar” sensor, after disconnecting the battery negative lead.
3 Release the wiring loom grommets, taking care not to lose them, then tie string to the wiring loom(s), and pull the loom(s) through the boot lid. Leave the string(s) in position in the boot lid to aid refitting of the loom(s).
4 Mark the location of the hinges on the underside of the lid using a soft pencil or masking type, then loosen the four hinge bolts.
5 With the help of an assistant, remove the bolts and lift the boot lid from the vehicle.
6 Refitting is a reversal of removal, bearing in mind the following points.
7 Adjust the hinges to their original marked positions before tightening the bolts.
8 On completion, check that the boot lid is central within its aperture and aligned with the surrounding bodywork. Re-adjust the hinges to give satisfactory alignment if necessary.
9 Check that the lock striker engages fully in the lock, and if necessary adjust the position of the lock striker.
