Re: Boot problem
It's usually the gas struts that keep the lid up.
If they get weak or leak, the lid will drop back down.
Check if you have these fitted to your boot.
An austerity fix is a piece of wood to hold it up but that kind of spoils the " look at me, I've got a Cabriolet " err... look.
Especially if the wood slips and the boot lid drops on your head while you load your shopping.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
