Hi, quick one i suppose if you know you know...

Boot left side compartment...I have a tiny little green light and what appears to be a handle like a boot release any ideas as to what it is? When i go to pull the handle the light goes red so i instantly stopped and left it green.

Thanks in advance...

It could be the actuator for a drop down tow hitch?

Yes, sounds like you've got the swivel towball, take the centre section of the rear diffuser off (2 clips under the bumper), pull the handle and it should drop out.

Thanks Wife has disappeared in the car once it comes back i will check it out. got the card 2nd hand a few months ago could be a nice surprise to have a tow bar on it. if its not i will post pictures.
Pure luck as i am looking to put the sound booster Kufatec modular plugin and was looking to see if i had the right exhaust and secondly that it wasn't already fitted by someone else. sure enough i did notice that the rear middle had 2 black twist pins - so it makes sense it could be a tow bar! cant wait for her to come back with the car now and will check and post.

thanks guys

Yes - Its a Towbar always nice to get something didn't expect...like new as well so don't think the car has pulled much on it. Its a tow bar un-did the clips under the rear, peak in to it and saw the swivel tow bar, pulled the release handle in the boot and down it dropped, a little tap to click in to place and voila a working tow bar with full electrics (Nice One!). Thanks for the assist guys. Found nothing in the user manuals.
