Scenic Tailgate Latch problem
Hi, thank goodness for forums like this, keep up the good work. On my 2003 Scenic (last of the old MkII) the tailgate latch is often difficult to engage with a slam of the door. Once it completely popped out.
The whole button/latch mechanism is largely plastic and seems to be 'secured' by an 'O' ring that had perished and broken. I completely removed the assembly and used a similar 'O' ring but it is not 100 %. Now the tailgate won't catch at all, button is slightly depressed all the time. Can I go to the dealer and get a repair kit for this or is there a Renault update/fix for what seems an inherent weakness? Hope you can help.
