Default Re: XE Rear Doors - Wiring

All is good now but am going to put a flex wire cover about an inch long in the middle of the boot and seal it with the self vulcanizing tape to waterproof. Seems the problem is that the boot is too short and the covering on the wires to brittle. Thanks again for advice
Same problem on my 5 door plus the rear hatch does not release. Where exactly are the fuses for the door locks and the hatch?
