Tailgate won't open

Evening all,

I have 2015 65 plate Zetec Ecosport and my tailgate won't open when you press the little black button.

My husband is going to pry the panel open and check the actuator tomorrow but if we need replacement, does anyone know where we could order the part. Ideally I don't want to order directly from Ford.

Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do to rectify this?

Also does anyone know if this will fail my MOT as it's due in the next 14 days, just to make matters worse.

Page 4 Technical issues. Doesn't say what had to be done but it seems like a Ford Job. Might be worth posting a question directed at those that were affected. Unfortunately as ColinJYD so often says these blessed vehicles are so high tec anything can cause a problem. Of course if your husband can gain access to the lock, good old WD40 might do the trick. If it's electrical then unfortunately it is a Ford dealer. I tried to get a part number from them direct and they refused just referred me to a dealer.
Good luck
