One of the car's remote control keys must be within range behind the car for unlocking to work.
The boot lid is held closed by an electrical lock.
Press gently on the rubberised pressure plate beneath the boot lid handle.
The lock is released.
Lift by the outside handle in order to open the boot lid.
- Minimal force is required to release the boot lid's lock - just gently press the rubberised panel.
- Do not place the lift force on the rubber panel when opening the boot lid - lift the handle. Using too much force may damage the electrical contacts on the rubber panel.
It is also possible to open the boot lid hands-free with a kicking motion under the rear bumper, see separate section.
Do not drive with an open boot lid! Toxic exhaust fumes could be drawn into the car through the cargo area.
