Sometimes the boot does not latch

Has anyone had this problem? Sometimes the boot will not latch. I have to press the switch on the boot (under the license plate) and close it repeatedly. Each time I press the switch the lock activates. Eventually it latches. Sometimes on the second try and sometimes on the tenth try. Is there a lubrication point or adjustment to be made? I don't see anything in my manual.

I tend to overload my boot, so that is where my latch problem stems from.

I see you don't have a garage set up. What model/year do you have?

Hey, Rob - how've you been? No problems with the boot latch here and our MINIs have to be about the same age.

My 02 had this problem. I had to adjust the latch hook every so often.
