Thread: B9 Allroad - Sensor operated tailgate?

  1. Default B9 Allroad - Sensor operated tailgate?

    Hey guys, so I picked up this beautiful machine this week.


    Now I was under the impression that the sensor operated tailgate (kick your foot under the rear bumper to open the tailgate) was standard, the specification guide certainly says so. I can't for the life of me make it work though. Has anyone else had similar issues?

    Probably doesn’t help you, but it was a standard feature on our C7 RS6 as well and I never once got it to work.

    Mine works OK on the C7 S6. I stand behind the 'inner right' parking sensor and kick my foot under the rear bar slightly. Indicators flash and boot pops open. Once you get the technique down pat it works pretty well most of the time.

    Figured it out: One very quick kick under the rings. Very quick being the keyword(s)!

    Took me a while too. Now I have a tow bar fitted I think it has covered the sensor!
