Back home now, stripped the rest of the old boot.

 

When @Krzys and I installed the new boot, we shut it and the boot wouldn't open! :wacko:

 

So we started the change stuff, it appears we were a bit prememaprememature, when I got to Southampton it had fixed itself!

 

Still got a mystery wire hanging down. Doesn't appear to have effected anything, looks like a mini coaxial cable?! 

[Pic]

Box o spares! 

 

 

Think some Vulvas come with an Amp / CD changer that's in the boot, maybe its that?

Bloody hell Tom! See, i said that handbrake failure could happen to even new cars but that's unbelievable that it has. Especially in the exact same place!! Guted for you mate, really like these volvos. Sis in law has the R Design one, same engine as yours i believe. Does yours have a wierd rear view mirror that has a display thingy in it?

No, ours doesn't have a display in it!

 

Like I said, user error I think.

Good work Tom. As if it never happened ;)

 

Nearly.

 

The radio needs fixing,  the ariel is around the boot glass, should be just a coaxial joiner to fix.

 

Still a bounced out mark on the bumper too.

Apart from the boot all good.

Getting about 43mpg, not bad.

Service indicator has come on so it's in the garage tomorrow!

The curse of the boot continues! 

 

It wouldn't open using the latch on the rear.

Turns out one of the three pins going into this connector had completed disconnected itself and got itself stuck.

Luckly still owning a second boot lid saved the day. New connector wired up. New boot trim and switch wired up too. Done.

 

In other diesel motoring news... Here is a tasty sandwich.
