Re: 51 Scenic Tailgate stays locked

I have not looked at a Scenic but it's possible if you can get to the tailgate from inside the car look right at the bottom there may be a small slot that you can put a small screwdriver blade through and by moving it up or down release the lock, once its open take off the cover and you will most likely find the motor is burnt out or full of water. Cant be more specific as I have not looked at your model.
The slot is difficult to find a torch will help.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
