    hi mate, where do you live in Birmingham???

    If you want to get the boot done and the boot release fitted (metro ones from the scrappy do the job ) then check these lot out. they will give you a 10% discount for being an AS member.

    I would guess that it goes in the boot !

    To open the boot you normally have to pull or turn something on the boot lock mechanism.
    The solenoid thing you've bought must make some kind of actionaswell.
    So you need to position the solenoid thing so that when activated it pulls or turns the lock mechanism, making it open.



    Alternatively phone up supernovas and get them to send you instructions.
    I'm sure they'll help you as much as they can.

    if you're close to www.rjautomotive.co.uk might be worth taking it to them and paying labour to get them to do it. If you can't do it properly it might be better for you to pay and have it done properly. Just my advice.
