    The boot on my e46 M3 won't open any more from either the boot handle switch or from the button on the key fob - I need to manually use the keyhole which is a pita. Does anyone know a quick way of diagnosing what part needs to be replaced?

    So I replaced the boot actuator (the actual boot latch with the motor/actuator attached) but it made no difference - the handle switch and the keyfob both still not working.

    As the keyfob didnt work, I assumed that it wasn't related to the boot grab handle switch itself. Does the entire boot grab handle/switch need to be replaced even to open from the key-fob?

    #13 in this picture replaced already
