Boot Closing Handle

This isn't the best DIY guide in the world but thought it may help someone out in the future.

The handle on the R172 inside the boot (trunk, for our American friends) has a screw holding it on. This can come loose but is a five minute job to tighten. Start by using a flat blade screwdriver to take the cover off and make sure to catch the screw when it drops out. You'll need a torx screw bit to tighten it up. Pop the cover back on and you're good to go.
