Suggested Solution

hi, it is most probable that the rear wiper motor washer pipe has come off and leaked into the boot lock assembly. remove the rear pannel to expose the lock and wiper motor, check pipe connections. remove boot lock and dry out with airline check electrical connections on lock for corrosion. usually the water damages the switch and can only be resolved by replacing the boot lock assembly. it seems to be a common problem. hope this helps!!!
