General hints for operating

tailgate

9 Danger

Do not drive with the tailgate open

or ajar, e.g. when transporting

bulky objects, since toxic exhaust

gases, which cannot be seen or

smelled, could enter the vehicle.

This can cause unconsciousness

and even death.

Caution

Before opening the tailgate, check

overhead obstructions, e.g. a

garage door, to avoid damage to

the tailgate. Always check the

moving area above and behind the

tailgate.

Note

The installation of certain heavy

accessories onto the tailgate may

affect its ability to remain open.
Note

The operation of the power tailgate

is disabled under low vehicle battery

conditions. In this case, the tailgate

may not even be manually operable.
Note

With the power tailgate disabled and

all doors unlocked, the tailgate can

only be operated manually. In this

event, manually closing the tailgate

requires significantly greater force.
