Boot Release "Solenoid"
Posted 12 October 2009 - 12:52 PM
I have attached a photo of what I think it is.
Hope you can help.

You can stop looking, there isn't a solenoid at all but that motor and gearbox that you already found is sometimes referred to as a solenoid because some locks used to use solenoids.
Check the wiring and disconnect the switches (one at a time), as the boot switch is known to fail. Does the keyfob remote button open the boot?

Turned out to be the solenoid / motor inside the catch mechanism itself. It had jammed solid. I couldn't open the boot by the button on the fob, the button behind the gearstick or by the button on the tailgate itself.
Took the catch off the bootlid and found the solenoid / motor to be held on with 2 screws and a simple plug-like connector.
Guess what!! Ford don't sell just the solenoid/motor on it's own (that'd be a cheap fix). Nope, you've got to buy the whole bl**dy catch mechanism.
Anyhow, fitted said new catch mechanism, tiny bit of adjustment so it catches correctly and BINGO! , all back and working well.
Hope this helped.
