07 C5 estate tailgate glass won't open

Post by Kenmac15 »

Hi
As the title say's the switch/solenoid has obviously packed in.
Where is the best place to get a replacement or is the original one repairable ?

Hi Ken
C5 Tailgate Switch.PNG
Have a look at the diagram.

(1) Is the Tailgate Lock, part: 871986, £59.80
(14) Is the Locking Actuator, Part: 661527, £167.90
(21) Is the Rear Tailgate Contactor Switch, Part: 6554F1, £28.28

All are available VAT inclusive from Citroen. Let me know if you need the part for something else on the diagram.

Why do you think the switch/solenoid has obviously packed in? The Mk1 and Mk2 C5 Estate rear windows were notorious for the wiring failing. I had a struggle finding the fix for this and had to resort to the Wayback machine.
