I have a 10 plate astra h. The tailgate won't open. I can open it mechanically from inside, I've changed the switch, I can hear a click from the fuse box inside the boot, but it doesn't operate the lock. Any advice folks?

Usually it means the switch has become disconnected due to constant slamming. The mechanism still clicks but doesn’t open. Take off the interior panel of the tailgate and click the switch back together!

The switch is new and is complete. Washers work so it's not the fuse.
Just clicks away but won't operate the lock. Doing my head in !

I did. Turned out the pins in the plug into the locking mechanism had simply rusted away! Got one at a scrap dealer, wired it in, success!
