Opening/closing the tailgate with foot movement*Updated 23/07/2018
One of the car's remote control keys must be within range2 behind the car in order for opening/closing to be possible. This also applies to an already unlocked car in order to avoid accidental opening e.g. in a car wash.
A short acoustic signal sounds when opening/closing is activated - the tailgate is opened/closed.
If the tailgate is on open position then it is always closed on activation via foot movement.
The tailgate can also be closed via the instrument panel's button, the remote control key or the button(s)1 under the tailgate. For more information, see the section "Power operated tailgate".
If several kicking motions take place without an approved remote control key being located behind the car, opening 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.
The remote control key does not have to be in the vicinity of the car to cancel opening/closing.
With the accessory skid plate/diffuser*
If the car is equipped with the skid plate/diffuser* accessory, then the detector is positioned out towards the left-hand corner of the bumper.
To activate opening/closing with a foot movement on a car equipped with the skid plate/diffuser accessory, the kicking motion is made from the side of the car.
