Re: Scenic tailgate catch problem

Thank you for your help again folks. The hoop moves about a bit, not much though and seems very pushed in. I remember my old Scenic having a loop that moved in and out and up and down, whereas this one isn't anywhere new the same. I took the plastic cap off and had a look but there is nothing obvious to suggest what, if anything, has pushed it back and got it stuck. Will need to loosen the bolt tomorrow morning and try that because at the time, I was too busy trying to move the damn loop about.

Tried some WD40 but no luck there. Weather seal seems okay.

I put a screwdriver into the lock jaws and nothing seemed to happen, so maybe that part needs replaced, however would not having the boot button to press in affect this?

Sorry, for being a pain, but LancsDave, I can't see your pic on your reply.

I have attached a pic of how the loop looks at present.

Thanks again,
