Only had this Zafira 7 months, starting to wish I'd stuck with my old Ford Focus. It's a Zafira lite 1.9 2006 with a low mileage. Over Christmas it broke down,(fortunately for me in tesco car park beside where I live. It needed a new alternator which set me back £250.(How long is an alternator supposed to last!) I'd already spent another £250 a couple of days earlier on 2 front new tyres due to it skidding in the snow which caused problems. No sooner had it come out the garage when the boot wouldn't close. As soon as I clicked the key to open the door the boot opened and the lock started clicking. It showed on the dashboard that it was open and no amount of slamming the boot would close it. As soon as the engine was turned off the boot closed. Perfectly okay before I had the new alternator put in. The garage thinks it needs a new lock (another £100+ bill, oh no!). Could it be something simple like a fuse. I would appreciate some help, thanks.
