Powered tailgates!

Looking for owners of Avants with a powered tailgate, how easy is yours to close manually?

mine is really quite hard, it feels like im doing damage to it!

I have seen a post of a guy in the US with a Tuareg and unpowered his tailgate closes real smooth by hand, I think they use similar motors?

I have taken my motors out and the tailgate is a pleasure to use now. With the motors in it was very hit and miss if it was going to open electrically.

Thanks
Peter

Did you adjust the locking plate on the boot bumper area, sometimes if its too tight it doesn't like it as it can't unlatch so easily.

Yes, that has been checked as best I can. The boot will release and try to open about an inch, then fall back down, if I click the remote again it will open fully 50% of the time. But then its a 50/50 chance of it closing with then button.
