Right, it would shout to me that the solenoid is either duff or a wire has come adrift or broken.

Now, as I stated before, I'm not ofey with your particular motor. It may well be that the solenoid is part of the catch itself, hence why the dealers said you need a new one.

Eitherway, the only way to find out for sure is to remove the boot trim and have a look at the workings.

Get the trim off and post some pictures if you get stuck and we'll see what, if any, advice we can give

One last thing, once you've established what it is, it should be relatively easy to whip out the old part and lock in the new....he says with baited breath

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
