    Hi there i have 2007 Q7 sline. It has the power tailgate but very very occasionally when you release with the remote or the button it will just pop it but not lift it or go down again. But rights itself after almost every time. Any ideas would be appreciated. It now fine again till next time. Very random !!

    Thanks VW754. Can the struts or one of the gas struts just jamm or something and free up. When it does jam and i try and lift it manually it is very very tight and almost feels u may break something.

    I dont stop it it just wont go up could a slight battery drain cause it as it mainly seems to be if it has been sat overnight
