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 ebay and is quite cheap.)
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
