    Default Hello and an 09 C5 Tourer question

    Hey out there!

    Just a quick note to say hello; I've been reading the forum for some years but haven't had a French car for some time until circumstances meant I know have a C5 Hdi Tourer in the garage

    (In case any of you Brisbane types are wondering; yes it was the one at Norris VW Nundah).

    Any ways, loving the car but I have one question that all the reading of the book doesn't answer...is there any way to open the tailgate form inside the car apart from the button on the key? In spite of all the convenience and safety features these cars come with surely there4's a button somewhere I've missed?

    Nigel,

    Do you have the "comfort" or " the executive" ? I have the comfort of the same year and definitely no button for the tailgate per se.

    1 to lock, 2 to unlock, and 3 for "follow me home headlights"

    I think you might mean a button to open the tailgate remotely, ie automatically - no hands.

    I suspect this option came with later year models.

    Great car anyway! Any photos?

    Nigel,

    The only way to open the tailgate on my 2008 comfort is to walk around the back and lift on the switch above the number plate.

    Welcome to the Cit Club.

    Cheers, Ken W

    oh...and I can open the tailgate by the remote (pain when its in the ignition) or by pushing the button on the tailgate BUT only when all doors are unlocked...which is what led me to think there might have been a switch inside...
