Electric lower tailgate failed

Post by jimbg » Mon Sep 17, 2018 7:11 am


When I opened the boot to let the dog out the lower tail gate only partially opened.

I can manually move it up and down and was wondering if there was a reset or is it another trip ti the dealer?

Mine has done it on a number of occasions
Have just manually lowered it and it works again for 6mths.
Put it down to the clever computer boffins at land rover.
They would have more success of getting it right if they pssed it over to the local infant school.

I've had the same issue with the tailgate flap on my 17 reg HSE. Doesn't move at all now. Also my tailgate will only open a fraction with the remote key. LR have told me it's a motor senior issue. Awaiting new tailgate motor this week.
