    Welcome mate

    Do all the other lights work fine, eg glove box or sunshade lights?

    Yes all other lights work fine. Wires leading to the courtesy light in the boot look fine too and holder looks ok, so not sure what it could be.

    Had one in today, light went out when the boot was open for to long, opened up a rear door and it came on again. There are no switches just for the boot light so maybe a broken wire.

    Can you get a multimeter onto the wires to see if you have live and earth?
