ok so other day i opened the boot to show the wife how much room there was compared to older car..... i noticed there wasnt a button and it felt like touch screen controlls under the handle is this normal?
i went to shut the boot and heard the motor pop it open again. this repeated for about 5 mins until i smashed the thing shut and that was that.
any ideas why it might be poping back open?
cheers

I have EXACTLY the same problem with my boot lid too, mine is the same car and year as yours.
I have tried moving the boot catch to various places incase it was just not catching, scanned the central locking with no faults..???
If you come up with a solution or anyone else has ideas i also would love to hear from you :)

You need to take the handle off. 2 6mm nuts from inside the car.unplug it and remove it .then you can take the plastic cover off and spray with wd40 where it pivots to make contact with the switch . Once it's nice and free refit the handle . 10 minute job :)

I had this problem last week.

As state, take the trim off the inside of the boot, undo the 2 x 10mm nuts and take the handle off.

My one didn't seem to have any springiness or anything to make the little flap bit return to normal after being pressed, and no amount of wd40 was going to change that.

I fixed mine my inserting 2 small rubber o rings in between the button/flap and the body of the switch, so that the flap is not contacting the switch (which is the issue and why it doesn't close).

Works fine now, as the rubber o rings give enough for the flap to make the switch contact.

You'll see what I mean when you get the handle off. Takes 5 mins to get it off.
