Hi all,
This seems to be a common issue where the boot /tailgate handle snaps off.

As you probably know (as i found out) it can cost between £150 and £250 to get this handle replaced and sprayed.

Well i thought... naaa to expensive and designed some 3D printed parts to repair it myself. i listed them on ebay and they seem pretty popular.

I didn't want to bring it to the forum until I was happy the part works now with 1 month sales and over 300 sales and (at this stage 100% positive feedback) I'm happy to announce my £15 fix that give a better fixing then OEM

I hope this part saves people a lot of money!
Any questions feel free to inbox me :)

Hi,This boot lid cover is a poor design as all the load of lifting is transfered through the flimsy mouldings inside the cover. The load applied can be fairly high if the boot release is not opened before you lift the boot lid ! To replace you need to remove the iside cover from the boot lid and then remove the five bolts from the boot lid and then slide them into the replacement moulding (which will cost you about £160 !!!!!!!) and then refit the assembly of cover and bolts back onto the boot lid. To be able to remove the numberplate lights and boot lock switch you need to disconnect that piece of the wiring harness from inside the boot lid. Bill
