Ok..there was some serious corrosion on the contacts..like it had got damp or something..Could not get good pics of the corrosion but i took what I could..maybe this will help someone else down the line...


Gently pop the trunk button out of the door
Then use a jewlers screwdriver to remove wiring harness..
Take the switch somewhere comfy..LOL

I cleaned all contacts and then added some di-electric grease to prevent further corrosion..(although this shouldnt get wet..but apparently it did)

Another Problem solved by Bonneville Club....

and to think I paid someone to do this For me last time D'Oh!
