Always take care when unlocking, opening or closing the tailgate otherwise you could cause accidents and serious injuries.
  • Therefore the tailgate should only be opened or closed when you are sure that nobody is in its path.
  • Never close the tailgate by pushing it down with your hand on the window. The rear window could shatter and cause injuries.
  • After closing the tailgate, check to make sure that it is closed and locked correctly so that it does not open while the vehicle is in motion. The closed tailgate must be flush with the surrounding body panels.
  • Always keep the tailgate closed while the vehicle is moving so that no poisonous exhaust fumes can enter the vehicle interior.
  • Never open the tailgate if a load is attached to it, e.g. a rack or luggage carrier. In the same way, the tailgate cannot be opened if there are objects, e.g. bicycles, attached to it. The additional load might cause the open tailgate to close by itself. Support the tailgate as necessary or remove the load from the surface.
  • Close and lock the tailgate and all vehicle doors when the vehicle is not in use. Ensure that no one remains in the vehicle.
  • Never leave children playing unattended in or around the vehicle, especially when the tailgate is open. Children could climb into the luggage compartment and shut the tailgate, thereby trapping themselves inside. Depending on the time of year, a locked vehicle can be subjected to very high or very low temperatures. This could cause serious injuries and illness or fatalities, especially for small children.
  • Never leave children or people requiring assistance alone in the car. They could use the vehicle key or central locking button to lock the vehicle and thereby trap themselves inside.


Before opening the tailgate, please check that there is enough space to open and close the tailgate, e.g. when towing a trailer or when in a garage.
