    Hello all,

    Have found a guide to removing the soft close pump in the boot and sealing the ball bearings with glue.

    Thought I would give the fix a try before the pump completely craps out on me.

    I have done the temporary fix of resetting the system by removing and reinstalling the fuse and I guess I have a few days before the pump trips out again.

    But I’m now stuck at the first hurdle. How do I get the 5 plastic pins which are either side of the latch mechanism out? They seem to be securing the plastic front plate to the locking mechanism. Any ideas?
