    Apart from the normal "take it to a dealer" what you described sounds a bit like the switch is the issue.

    Polo 6R Boot Light issue

    Mine does exactly the same thing, with a delay between opening the boot and the light turning on.
    Have you noticed a change in the sound/behaviour of the boot release mechanism by any chance?

    have you actually checked the bulb? if the bulb is ok its more than likely the boot latch micro switch playing up. when you open the boot does it display the door open symbol on the dash panel?? ....VDUB....

    It will be an open circuit some where in the boot, best to take it to stealership. Had the same problem with mine

    In mine, the bulb is fine and no open door/boot light comes on the dash.
