Re: Scenic tailgate catch problem

That's odd, can you move the hoop at all ? They usually move a bit, a sort of self aligning function.
If you slide a screwdriver into the lock jaws, as if it was the hoop, does it grab it & then release when open button is pressed? That proves the lock mech is OK & yes WD40 wouldn't harm.
Lifelong fan of Horace Rumpole BTW.
