OK, now I have your attention. Just this: when I raise my S60 SE boot (trunk) lid, about a third of the way from the left in the boot (trunk) roof there's a metal tube that looks like a rifle barrel sticking out (though not so far out as to be able to grab it.) Anybody have a clue as to what it is? I don't want to pull at it in case it goes off...

I think it is a hydraulic cylinder of some sort that helps support the trunk lid when it is open.

Without a picture, I can't be certain, but it may be part of the seat belt system (pre-tensioners in case of accident).

Oh good, no arrest. I couldn't get a pic of it anyway - too dark in there. I have drawn one and here it is...<br><A HREF="http://photobucket.com" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v112/TheVicar/boot.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br>Don't get too excited - I had to use MS Paint which is for pre-school kids who are allegic to crayons.<br>Imagine the large rectangle as the boot/trunk roof. That li'l round thing second from the left is the sniper's weapon. OK, he won't hit much without a foresight and there's also the fact that the rifle barrel isn't, er, rifled, but we may have a rank amateur here.<br>On the other hand we may indeed have a pneumatic tube as suggested, in which case I'll disregard it and if I wake up dead one day with a bullet in the chest I'll know who to blame...<br>On another subject entirely, has anyone ever done an aftermarket sat-nav install?<BR><BR>
