    You end up having to force the boot lid, unfortunately. It’s not moving under power.

    We’ve dropped the car at VW, so we see what they come back with.
    2018 Golf R (Ticks all the boxes, really, really well)
    2021 Passat Alltrack Premium (Its got lots of boot space…)
    2017 Tiguan R-Line (Sold, and missing it.)

    We got the car back for two weeks, and then it’ll be back to the workshop for what could be a three/four day stint.

    No error codes or issues detected with the diagnostics, but the new struts modules are dead too. They lasted almost a month.

    They’re thinking there’s an issue elsewhere which is causing the failure of the modules. Apparently this means starting at the back of the vehicle, pulling the wiring harnesses and electronics out, following its routes towards the front of the vehicle, inspecting everything as they go about it in the hopes of finding the issue.

    Probably unlikely but the micro switches in the locks have a reputation of failing and while they sound like they have unlocked they havent. Had similar in our Polo. Sounded like it worked but didnt and the light in the boot didnt work.

    A $23 lock from AliExpress fixed it. Does sound like yours also has other problems though, but if lock was jamming may have burnt out the modules.

    The boot unlatches and pops open when you press the open button and locks when you press it down, so I think the micro switches may be okay?
