    Sorry, mine was sold back in June.

    It was supplied buy RJ Automotive but I think they are no longer in business.

    If you have a clifford alarm, have the remote boot release option fitted, works a treat from the remote or via a button at the front of the car.

    I got my local bodyshop to do this to my old astra. I think it cost just over £50 to do, and included a switch inside to open the boot - had to replace the boot lock release with that off a ford focus and used all the kit and wiring that came from one out of a scrappy to wire up the solenoid and switch. worked perfectly. Considering doing the same thing to the coupe to be honest, looks smooth.

    shaan I stripped a boot look out my focus to use on my astra but the solenoid and lock asembally is all in one, how did you use it, mate did you just replace the latch to stop it from catching when the solenoid realesed. I have it on mine you see but I still aint got round to sorting out the cath on the asembally
