    Hi

    I have a 2007 W211 E- Class E320 CDI Sport. The boot handle has stopped working, working only with the key inserted.
    Someone has said the boot brake light and/or number plate not working has something to do with the handle not working.
    Could anyone advise what the reason for it not working would be or what I can check.

    Thanks

    If you're brake light and number plate lights are out then the brown wire on the left hand side of the boot looking from the rear and located on the boot hinge will be broken and this also stops the handle working. Just strip and reconnect
