    Only just noticed the car doing this; unlock car with remote then only when I open the drivers door I get think sort of light clunk noise that appears to come from the back of the car, is this somehow related to the boot mechanism does anyone know?

    Does the boot actually open up? Sounds like it is just the locking mechanism, you could always try standing next to the drivers door with the car still locked and pressing the boot unlock button on the key fob to see if it sounds the same?

    Also, I can't remember fully but is there not a secure boot lock feature inside the car where you turn the key just in front of the driver's seat on the floor by the door? Just wondering if it's something to do with that?

    Aye, you've got the location right and I believe you've hit the nail on the head. When you open the drivers door, it locks the boot to secure it. @Old Cruiser, stick your key in there and turn it, the noise should go away, but your boot will be unlocked while driving still :Smile:
