    Audi auto boot opening system

    Rights guys I have had my A4 for a few years and the other day I thought should the boot spring up when I unlock the boot using the remote? I have never thought of this before now.

    Comments welcome on if this should or should not do this?

    For info mine is a 2.0 TDI sline 2006

    Hi,
    i don't believe the boot is meant to actually fully open when you press the 'open boot' button. It certainly hasn't on my 2 previous A4's.
    All the button does is disengage the lock mechanism so as the boot can be lifted open.
    Hope this answers your question,
    Cheers,
    Davie.

    It was an option as new, however, people have tried to retrofit it and as far as I know, noone has been successful. Think there was a thread on another forum.

    I've got it on mine, 30 option iirc

    Never looked into how it actually works but at that price I can only imagine it's a "big spring" ?????

    I believe it's a set of new brackets and pistons. Here's the thread over on Tyresmoke:

    CSK: Any chance you can post pictures of the pistons each side of the boot and also the latch? Can you see any visible part numbers on pistons/latch so I can match against mine?

    Re: Audi auto boot opening system

    I also looked into it on my old car, to expensive to retro fit. Lucky my new car has it, very useful :-)

    Probably got some wound spring in hinges, does it make it a little harder to close aswell?

    Yes, you need to shut it harder otherwise it springs back up...

    Understandable, only way you can do without is by electrics, like the Q7 etc.
