Boot wont open - factory ful size spare wheel fitted on boot

Recommended Posts

i have had my cayenne for about two years now and its about time i fixed the boot . i purchased it like it and now its just a pain .

i have the full size spare wheel on the boot door , so i press the button open this and swing open , press the button on the glass and that opens , if i press the button on the boot its self to open to put things in i get nothing . the button clicks but nothing ,

ive noticed when this is open the dash doesn't register the door is open , so on the lower spare wheel hinge removed some trim and inside is a connector which is unplugged , i plugged the connector back together and bingo , the dash thinks the rear boot is open all the time now .

ive tried replacing the actuator inside the boot on the release bar nothing and now power to it when pressing button , so must be a fault with what ever this plug connects to , i will put pics on in the next day or two , and i know that the spare wheels on the boot is rare as they were a 3K option !

so any help would be appreciated !

other than this 140K still going strong except i have done the propshaft got the £40 bearing on ebay and split the shaft and replaced it and the cooling pipes and the wet carpets but all sorted now ! loving the 4.5TT
