Exclamation Tailgate Problems

Hello I have a 2011 Renault Megane Dynamique T-tom Dci Eco and I'm having problems with the tailgate, it pops open as I start the engine and pull away. I leave the engine running, go round and shut the tailgate and everything is then OK until the next time I have to start the car. Any ideas as to why the tailgate should pop open like this?

Re: Tailgate Problems

You could check that the button on the tailgate is returning fully after pushing in.
If it doesn't the car won't see the 'open' command all the time.
Seen a few C5s like this, one had the entire lock replaced twice to no effect.
The culprit was the plastic chromed trim surround catching on the button return.
chuffer690 and ours2012 like this.

Re: Tailgate Problems

Thanks Brendan, unfortunately that's not the culprit in this case.

Re: Tailgate Problems

Have a look through the threads sure someone had this issue before ...although I think there's was a Clio

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together

Here's one. Thread gone suspiciously quiet after a big finger crossing
2006 Megane hatchback. Boot keeps opening by itself

and another that looks like it's meeting the other thread

Megane II - Boot opens itself
