Good Morning. I've bought a GT recently. This is a simple question. Should the boot pop open when i press the button? I press the button and it just unlocks, and I have to get my fingers under the boot to lift open. I had a quick glance yesterday, but couldn't see how it's meant to work. I'll have a proper look in a bit, as my primary job yesterday was reseating and resealing the injectors.

Thanks in advance and sorry for what is probably an easy question.

Also just recently got a GT. Mine pops up about an inch so I can get my fingers under it easily but it doesn't open completely on pressing the button.

The rubber bump stops tend to stick, twist the rubbers and they should pop out on springs, give them a good squirt of your preferred freeing agent.

Should lift the tailgate enough to get your fingers under comfortably.

All the best

Further to Pubs post, turning mine did nothing but putting a hex wrench in the hole in the centre of the rubber stop & twisting, made it pop out 20mm. Result, but, now have to make sure boot closes properly instead of just gently putting it down:thumbs:

Mine is a pain, it hardly pops up at all but it never makes a squeak or a rattle either so it's staying like it is :lol:

Thanks for the suggestions. I unscrewed the rubber stops a bit and gave them a clean, pops up about 5mm which is more than before. That'll do, because the boot seals fine. :thumbs:
