Rubber plate with electrical contact.

The boot lid is held closed by an electrical lock. To open:

  1. Push down gently on the wide rubberised pressure plate under the outer handle - the lock is released.
  2. Lift the outside handle in order to fully open the tailgate.

Important

  • Minimal force is required to release the luggage compartment lock - just gently press the rubberised panel.
  • Do not place the lift force on the rubber panel when opening the luggage compartment - lift the handle. Using too much force may damage the electrical contacts on the rubber panel.

Unlocking with the remote control key

The alarm for the tailgate can be disarmed* and the tailgate unlocked on its own by using the remote control key's button.

The lock indicator on the instrument panel stops flashing which indicates that not all of the car is locked and the alarm's* level and movement sensors and the sensors for opening the boot lid are disconnected.

The doors remain locked and armed.

  • The tailgate is unlocked, but remains closed - press lightly on the rubberised pressure plate under the outer handle and lift the tailgate.

If the tailgate is not opened within 2 minutes then it is relocked and the alarm is re-armed.

The boot lid can be opened in two different ways

One press - The boot lid is unlocked, but remains closed - press lightly on the rubberised pressure plate under the outer handle and lift the boot lid.

If the tailgate is not opened within 2 minutes then it is relocked and the alarm is re-armed.

Two presses - The boot lid is unlocked and the lock is disengaged at which the boot lid opens about a centimetre - lift the outer handle to open. Rain, cold, frost or snow could however prevent the tailgate from disengaging from the lock.

Note

  • When the boot lid/tailgate is unlocked with 2 presses, automatic relocking does not take place because the boot lid/tailgate is open - it must be closed manually.
  • After the boot lid/tailgate has been closed it is unlocked and the alarm is not armed - relock it and re-arm the alarm with the remote control key's lock button .
