    Estate tailgate release switch

    After help pleasei
    I have a 60 plate estate and the boot release switch has stopped working, (not a key fob release type) I understand itís a common fault,
    I thought Iíd have a go at replacing it myself but I canít figure out how to remove the chrome coloured tailgate piece. Iíve seen the YouTube video of the German guy but the estate version is different. Iíve removed all bolts and pushed through the plastic clips but still wonít release. Any ideas?
    Also, are the replacement switches the same for all models?
    Thanks in advance
