    Hi guys,
    weird problem started on my Legend, the boot keeps opening by itself. I can hear a hissing electric sound from the release button when it happens. Should I be ok with just replacing the boot/fuel door button setup? Already found some on Ebay.

    Hello, you'll have to determine what is causing the boot to open itself.
    Does it happen when driving? Or when the car is parked.

    It's the latch because when I disconnect it the problem goes away. So it gets stuck somehow.

    I'm half tempted to say try and lubricate the latch, also check that any boot release buttons aren't catching.
