adjusting tailgate

can anyone tell me how to adjust the tailgate on a sportwagen ?

Mine is very hard to close, i sick to death of slaming it all the time, and yes the car has been hit from behind but when it was inspected they couldnt see any damage

Have a look at this thread, it seems to be a common issue but if yours has been hit it may have knocked it out of alignment.

I hope this is of use to you.

It is easy. Remove the plastic panel along the bottom of the boot opening to get access to the bolts that hold the catch in place.undo the bolts, slide the catch upwards a little, re tighten the bolts. Done.
