Opening and closing the boot lid with foot movement*

To facilitate the operation of the boot lid when your hands are occupied, it can be opened and closed by means of a forward kicking motion under the rear bumper.

If the car is equipped with keyless locking and unlocking* then you can open the boot lid with a foot movement.

The function with both opening and closing of the boot lid is also available when the car is equipped with power operated boot lid*.


The foot-operated boot lid function is available in two versions:

  • Only opening with foot movement.
  • Both opening and closing with foot movement.

Note that the function for closing with foot movement requires power operated boot lid*.

P5-15w19 - POT footmovement sensor
The sensor is positioned to the left of centre in the bumper.

One of the car's remote control keys must be within range behind the car (approx. 1 metre (3 feet)) for opening and closing to be possible. This also applies to an already unlocked car in order to avoid accidental opening e.g. in a car wash.

Opening and closing with foot movement

P5-15w19 - Tailgate Footmovement
Kicking motion within the detector's valid activation area.
Make one slow, forward kicking motion under the left part of the rear bumper. Then take a step back. The bumper must not be touched.

A short acoustic signal sounds when opening and closing is activated - the boot lid is opened/closed.

If the boot lid is in open position then it is always closed1 on activation via foot movement.

If several kicking motions take place without an approved remote control key being located behind the car, opening and closing will not be possible until after a certain delay.

Do not leave your foot positioned under the car during the kicking motion. This could cause activation to fail.

Cancel closing with a foot movement

Make one slow forward kicking motion when closing is in progress in order to stop the movement of the boot lid.
The movement of the boot lid is stopped and it returns to fully open. The boot lid can then be operated manually.

The remote control key does not have to be in the vicinity of the car to cancel closing.


There is a risk of reduced function, or no function, if the rear bumper is loaded with large amounts of ice, snow, dirt or similar. For this reason, make sure you keep it clean.


Pay attention to the possibility that the system may be activated in a car wash or similar if the remote key is within range.
