Back in November reports came in from members that the boot on their XF was reluctant to open fully and several reasons were put forward as to the cause.
In the end penultimateblack, such a long name, pronounced that it was simply no more than the operation of Boyles Law.
Simply put, the pressure of the gas in the struts supporting the boot varies in line with temperature variations. In very cold weather the boot was often not able to open, unaided, by more than about 50mm.

How things have changed. Today, my boot is popping open fully when asked and so I think that, because of the much warmer prevailing temperatures Boyle's Law has been proved :lol:
