Couldn't find answer in Community search

Issue:
  • E91 3 series estate
  • Boot release switch and key fob do not open boot
  • Pressing either button does initiate an electrical noise but does not release lock
  • Boot only opens from inside (pull tab)
  • Central locking button and remote work ok
Attempted fix:
  • I can see a plastic part of the actuator is cracked but I've not taken it off to properly inspect it
  • Actuator replacement? Common issue? Any other suggestions?
Thanks,

About 18 months ago I had to have the wiring loom replaced in the "boot" (I am in FL). I had some other symptoms, but I would check for broken wires. To do this, pull back the rubber insulation between the roof and the hatch on the right side. I had about half-a-dozen wires that had broken and several others that were about to break. My mechanic was able to find a replacement loom somewhere in Europe and ship over here.
