Re: Clio Boot won't catch when shut

Most boot locking mechanisms hook onto a metal loop in the sill of the boot. With time and use/abuse this loop becomes mis-aligned.

Just requires the two bolts loosening off, don't remove them, adjust the position of the loop, then re-tighten the bolts.

As a tip, this will probably a bit trial and error, so I suggest just nipping up the bolts just enough to hold the loop in place, until you find the correct adjustment. Then tighten.
