yeah i got a cable operated solenoid, and i have the same problem of trying to find a good place to mount it, its mounted in a really bad positon which doesnt seem stong enuff to pull the catch, thats why i wanna put a central locking motor in its place because it seems i could mount it better, because the release catch pops the boots where its pushed downwards.
