GT Owners. Tailgate Bumpstops In or Out

HI. I have seen many post regarding alarms going of when boot is opened. Mine did this from new and my dealer did this.
Are your boot bumpstops protruding out by about4/5cm on stalks. if not push them in a tad then twist each one anticlockwise by 1/4 turn and they will spring out. Now with the boot closed and alarm on you should be able to pop the boot with the fob This also disables the alarm. When you close the boot this will automatically re enable the alarm if you havnt opened a door. This can also help with the GT tailgate rattle as the stops help prevent movement. . See attached.
