Tailgate emergency safety release


  1. Insert the mechanical key into the keyhole.

  2. Move the mechanical key to the right (1).

  3. Push the tailgate upward.

  • For emergencies, be fully aware of the location of the emergency tailgate safety release lever in the vehicle and how to open the tailgate if you are accidentally locked in the luggage compartment.

  • No one should be allowed to occupy the cargo area of the vehicle at any time. The cargo area is a very dangerous location in the event of a crash.

  • Use the release lever for emergencies only. Use with extreme caution, especially whilst the vehicle is in motion.

  • Do not grasp the part supporting the tailgate (gas lifter), as this may cause serious injury.
