Help please - Boot release fault

Hi all, leaving B&Q tonight wanted to pop the boot. Pressed the key and car unlocked - pushed rubber button under chrome trim as usual, but boot would not release. After lock/unlock dance a few times it will now release, but greater pressure is required on rubber to get the boot to release.

Please go gentle on me- new to the forum and this is how my lovely MC repays me after finding her some 17" rims . Any advice appreciated.

The grip strip (chrome - or otherwise - strip that the button is attached to) suffers water ingress and corrodes the circuit. The parts are not available separately so it is a new grip strip required. Easily fitted but pricey to buy. Contact me if you require more info.
