    The two sockets are fitted for a vauxhall towbar kit. They need to be tech2 to be switched on. When I got my towbar fitted, the fitter just put a relay near the fusebox in the boot. Therefore there was no need to bother with the two sockets. I think I started a thread on it. Will have a look...

    If you have the genuine VX electrics then just ignore the plugs in the spare wheel well. You may however still have to get them tech2'd into the car.

    As for the boot it will only open if you push the button on the boot lid its self. The button on the remote/door only unlocks the boot and then you have to push the button on the lid

    the remote not only unlocks but opens it aswell remotely..and next time i press it shuts and locks it..however the logo on the driver's door doesnt seem to do anything but it might be what i'm looking for i'll have to see if it's a isolator but may thanks for the info i can now continue...

    Question

    I'm sorry if I am bringing life bakc to an old thread.

    I am going to fit a tow bar to my 06 vectra caravan.
    1st problem: How do I get the interior walls in the boot to come off? I found 1 torx screw near the rear of the "longitudinal-plastic-luggage-security-holder" thing, I suppopse there are one or two more to uncsrew or how does it come off?

    2nd problem/question: Where should I get the cables into the boot. At the leftside pointing backwards there are a hole with a rubbercup in it but that one is a little to small to get the cable socket through and in the bottom in the middle of the rear of the floor there a hole that seam bigger than the other hole but I don't wan't to break the plastic cover if that is not the one to use.
