Default Tailgate/boot issues? This might help

Evening all

Credit to VolvoSweden on YouTube for this, but this is a great video hes made (available in Russian too) for the frequently seen tailgate issue on the P3

I myself have this issue, and I know of many others that have VERY similar symptoms. I covered my connections in contact cleaner and its worked well for a good few months, but mine is now randomly ignoring the external handle! So Ill do this within the next few days if I get a chance.

So if you have a tailgate/boot that wont close/open/respond/indicates open when closed/indicates closed when open/slow wiper/odd warning lights.....this might be worth a look!
