    i had this problem not long after i got my veccy. tried wd40 & electolube through where the button goes but didnt solve the problem. in the end i took the tailgate interior trim off, removed the microswitch, cleaned it, put it back, wiggled it about a bit & it then worked perfectly until the lock packed up a few months ago, when i got a new lock for about £30. Original microswitch is still working perfectly.

    confused

    I've stripped the back out 3 times now, removed everything, cleaned, re-lubed and re-assembled it.

    It all works well but only lasts for a few weeks before it becomes intermitent again

    The only part that is totally sealed is is the micro-switch the housing for it is snug and a good fit.

    I sent my wife to the VX stealers and according to the spares dept man - he seems to think that the micro switch isn't available by itself

    hmmm, tricky one. i originally took mine to the local stealers & they reckoned that it was a faulty 'actuator' whatever that was and wanted £30 just for the part! After a little while & getting my hands dirty i had fixed it for £0 as stated in my 1st post.

    then, just before christmas my boot would open only very intermittently, if at all. took the lock mechanism out & tested it, but it never worked in the car, so got a new one from the stealers for the aforementioned £30, now all is well again.

    so, my point is, the problem may not be the microswitch. the lock mechanism can be bought as a single unit, without any extras & is reasonably priced in my opinion. may be false economy getting one from a breakers as that may not work properly, if at all, best get a new one.
