    A couple of non urgent questions that I would appreciate some advise on:

    1. I note the boot side windows have what looks like the heated wire element in them for demisting however these do not defrost when the rear window demist is activated. Is there another mechanism for defrosting these? If not does anyone know where the fuse for these is located?

    2. My boot lights occasionally come on momentarily when I open the tailgate and then switch straight off. Other times they come on and stay on, more so when I manually open the tailgate. I've tried messing with the light switches at the boot lights, I can turn them off altogether but this does not seem to make any difference to the occasionally not working issue. Is there any trick to these or does this sound faulty?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Boot side windows don't defrost I believe the Ariel for the radio is the wire you can see an possibly also alarm wires but not 100% on the alarm bit.

    Yes unfortunately I would of liked them to defrost and also demister cos in this weather two big wet dogs soon steam up the windows lol
