Faulty boot opening

Post by Seaview36 » Sat Mar 18, 2017 9:23 pm

Hello All. Just wondered if anyone else had had problems with the powered boot opening? Had to take my HSE back to the dealers in the first week - the technician said it was a problem with the rear panels not being riveted perfectly flat which caused a ripple in the rubber seal. Also feel a bit of an idiot waving my foot around trying to get the 'gesture' control to work - anyone else having the same problem? Otherwise, very impressed with it!

Hi. I am having a problem with mine. Doesn't always open on either the key , dashboard button or the button on the boot exterior. Going in a week in Wednesday to be looked at. What was the problem with yours? Is it ok now? Thanks

Yep heard of others having problems. Return to dealers for a slight adjustment.
See disco5 forum.

Yes, v2cjpp, all sorted now. Worked OK for the first few day, then no matter which button/key I used, it just made a slight clicking noise, moved maybe 2-3 mm and stopped. If I got my fingers under the bottom of it, I could pull it open, but of course no assistance from the gas struts so very stiff. Like I said before, the technician said it was a fault they'd already encountered. He said it was caused by the rear panels not being attached perfectly flat which caused a ripple in the rubber seal. Seems to be working fine again now. Still having problems with the gesture boot opening, though. Very erratic, and feel an idiot standing on one leg waving the other under the car!!

Cool. Hopefully ours will be fixed ok. My last two evoque had gesture but I always struggled to get it to work. Same on the disco. Hit and miss. Thanks for the info. Cheers
