Someone explain to me what a solenoid is? Is it like a switch that you use to open the boot from inside the car or summit?
 


The solenoid is the bit that actually pulls the catch open, I will find out where my mate bought mine from and post it on here it was only a fiver I think!!
 


I hope it is only i fiver then.Ive found the catch that needs to be pushed and mounting etc just got to get one now.

I put a long post up a while ago about it, how to do it etc. Have a wee search to see if you can find it.

A solenoid is a metal shaft with a electromagnetic coil around it. It pulls the shaft in when a current is aplied
