    Boot not opening

    Hi everyone,

    Having boot issues with my Tiguan 2009 model.

    Boot is locked and both the handle and boot fob button make a whirring noise when trying to open.
    Can do a manual release from inside the boot and then successfully close/lock the boot again.

    Have previously changed the latch about 1.5 years ago when it was making similar whirring noise, but at that time it wasn't actually able to latch/lock.

    Any idea what the issue could be? Does this sound like it could be the wiring harness or is there anything in the latch fitting itself that may be faulty?
