Default 307 Boot Release

Thinking about what i could put in to the spare button holes near my lock button i had an idea

A boot release button....

I assume its just a matter of finding the connections for the boot micro switch and tapping into these, although would that mean me running a cable from boot to dash?

Anyone done this before? would come in handy for when my boot switch inevitably packs in, as i have a sub and other things in my boot it would be a nightmare to get to the manual release!!

Answers on a postcard please

All Peugeot boot locks can be opened with a small screwdriver from inside if you fold down seats. No fear at all!

Probably just a standard loom fitted that includes connectors for all available options??

The only bugger i can see with this is that the micro switch you'd need to tap into is on the boot lid itself isnt it, so running the wires either inside the waterproofing or in a way that they dont get pinched might be tricky!

I will prob end up doing it myself. You could take it to one of those custom signs shop and get icons on the plastic buttons aswell.

I'd like to completely remove the boot handle, get it filled and sprayed over, have the interior button to release boot and get one that uses central locking. Think they sell them on ebay.

That idea sounds cool daffy! Probably a lot more reliable than keeping the boot switch. Mine's going dodgy now like
