Rear glass tailgate latches with microswitch

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).

Questions about the Pluriel Roof system can be asked here
No engine, gearbox or running gear questions
Think: Pluriel roof and rear window jobs
Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hi, Does anyone know where to obtain the latch microswitch s that undo the latches? I am missing one altogether and the wiring is joined to fool the system into thinking it’s always closed.
Many Thanks for any ideas

It might be the complete latch #2 which might include the microswitch. Heres a clearer shot of the latch and the black bit on the left hand side of it with the two round bits on it is the microswitch [ which is missing the internal bits on my car, a butcher got there before me! ]
Thanks again

If you are not sure of the before/after RPO, have a look at this topic Citroen C3 ORGA, RPO, RP or Birthday codes location.
