    Remote tailgate opening on A4 Avant

    Hi All,
    can someone tell me if the tailgate on an A4 Avant (2011)S Line Black Edition should open and raise or just open?
    i'm wondering if the gas struts are weak and won't push the tailgate up or wether there operating correctly and everything is as it should be.
    thanks in advance for your help
    Regards Andrew.

    Unlocking the tailgate using the centre button on fob or release button above number plate will just release the lock, tailgate has then to be opened/closed manually. The optional power operated tailgate (now standard on MY2014 onwards) can be powered open using the fob or the internal switch and closed using the button on the tailgate itself.

    on my B8 avant it opens right up, then you press a button on the inside of the tailgate and it closes itself.
