Re: Scenic tailgate catch problem
Got you a piccie of mine so you can compare hoop position.
The hoop does lift a good few mm for self alignment as Tim said.
The loop retainer bolt is under a plastic cap on the trim panel.
You might be able to l;oosen bolt and pull hoop towards bumper if needs be.
First check the nothing is stuck around the weater seal and that the weather seal is fitted correctly.
Also double check that the boot catch hasn't locked itself by pressing your makeshift button.
(The button is available as a kit on
and is quite cheap.)
