    Default Any pointers on changing a Bootlid

    In my previous thread I mentioned I had won a VXR rear spoiler but only hitch seller wouldnt risk parting it from the boot lid. So he gave me the lid with it attached..now I have it the colour is same so thought I would change the bootlid with mine. (mine has scratches hence the decision).

    A few questions..

    1) would the internal triming from my lid fit the new VXR one as it has none

    2) I want everything to work eg wiper, rear window heater, boot release from remote and itside door panels. Key is not a prob as key hole is blank anyway

    3) does anything need to be tech 2 in etc

    Want to be sure before attempting the job. Any help appreciated cheers

    It will probably take some time, but you can remove the boot trim, disconnect the wiring from the wiper and rear boot lock solenoid too. There'll probably a cpl of clips attaching the loom to the boot lid leading up to the top near the hinge. Grommet should pop out fairly easy and remove all electrics. Wiper and solenoid unbolt and should be easyish to remove as well.. Oh and they're may be connectors for the heated rear screen too..

    Nothing at all should need tech2'ing. Good luck with it. Any probs ask.

    As dean said,

    It's pretty much a case of un plug, move everything to new unit, and plug back in.

    It all depends on if there are any connectors inside the tailgate which seperate higher up the loom, but you'll find i think its one piece all the way up to and out of the car. Not sure if theres a plug the other side of it, ie in the headlining when it comes into the car though..
