Boot lid spring loaded plunger

Post by roymck » Sun Dec 11, 2016 3:46 pm

When I had my coupe I spent ages looking for the chrome spring loaded plunger that pops the boot up when it's unlocked. This turns out is actually a courtesy light switch fitted to some Rovers , Bristols Rolls Royce etc.

If you are missing one there is a guy on eBay called roverp4man that has a few , found him while looking under classic interior light.

Think this is also a part used on Sabres as well.

Try searching for him but without success, do you have an item number?
Many Thanks

For the record, if searching in future, note that his name is actually roverp4man :)
