    Default tailgate problems

    I've had the annoying rattle from the tailgate since i got my vectra a week ago, yesterday I tried to remedy this by adjusting the catch in the boot floor. It worked a treat until I started the car up and the light on the dash telling me the boot was open came on, even though the boot was closed.how does the car know that the tailgate is open i.e. I cant see a switch any where or is it built in to the lock itself ?

    Your rattle may be coming from one of the plastic pieces that "clips" on to the back of the parcel shelf and covers the gap between the parcel shelf and your boot. (That's what I found mine to be)

    I got a couple of these from the stealers on Friday. They only came to around £1 for the two.

    Still have the plastic bags they came in with the part number on at home. I'll post the part number up for you later.

    trickyjacks you need to take out the blue fuses in the boot then refit them that will fix the tail gate open problem ;-)
