Seen a few saxos going around with flushed tailgates, so with this in mind and i quiet like the smoothed look, i took it upon myself to set up a remote boot opening system.
I thought it would be a easy job, boy was i mistaken.

To go with the smooth look i decided to remove the rear wiper arm and washer jet. This improved the look greatly, but to be functional if i am going to flush the rear i needed a way to open the thing.


So i went scrap yarding for spare bits, i needed a boot solenoid. 6 Solenoids later and a few sparks i found one that would work.

To save time and effort of chasing wires through the car i figured that i aint got a rear wiper, so i could use those wires and the switch on the wiper stalk.

A bit of messing about and i got the solenoid mounted in the correct place, powered it up and the boot opened, i was over the moon.






I went to close it and the stupid thing wouldnt close becouse the solenoid wouldn't de energise, to re engage the lock. Bugger!!

basically i needed a spring to return the solenoid to the original postion

After driving around for a while with this set up, i found out that i could wire up my alarm unit and key fob to open the boot.

All i needed was a relay, and a bit of wire.

Basically connected up the alarm wire to the relay and then the relay to the wiper wire.
Success.
And the best thing is that unless theiving scum get hold of the key fob they cant get into the boot, because i removed all the locking mechanism and the key doesnt even work in the lock. happy
