Mine felt like hit/miss in the beginning. Then I figured I was passing my foot way too slow under the bumper. Now I do more of a light football side kick and it works almost always.

Just found out mine has been working all along but didn't realise that the kick has to be very quick and central to work. You live and learn. Pleased i found out before complaining to the dealer, that would have been embarrasing.

I've got this image in my head of you repeatedly kicking your foot in and out under the back of the car, cursing at it trying to get the boot to open :laugh:

... and if it doesn't open do you give it a damned good thrashing:

I must admit that i didn't really try too often as i only really would have found it an advantage on a few occasions when i had my hands full and needed the boot. I made sure nobody was around when trying as my neighbours would of been calling for psychiatric help for me.😄

Yes I would agree with that. When I got mine in August I thought it wasnt working, until I realised you have to kick like youy kicking a football, but not obvipously as hard, but it has to be upwards and almost touching the sensor then it works everytime. A slow forward kick never worked for me, if needs to be faster and upwards.

I have been kicking in out,in out,since 3 o'clock on my Mk1 Yaris, to retrieve the festive meat pies, and packs of lard that are traditionally enjoyed in this part of the world at this time of year.

I am bleeding frozen, and my right leg is getting really tired now, and the neighbours are looking at me as though I am demented.

Should I try pressing the button on the boot to open the hatchback?

Or give up, and order more pies and lard on Sainsbury's delivery?
