Absolutely correct T Roo, purely a matter of training, application and practice. She also can handle a GLK (now GLC) which has a heavier, and higher tailgate than the Roc. Added bonus, no need for her to visit the Gym to maintain upper body fitnessT Roo said:Your petite wife probably knows the 'trick' to closing the manual boot i.e. by pulling on the easier-to-reach recess on the inside of the boot lid rather than by stretching to push the boot lid shut from the outside. This helps a lot with closing and minimises contact between their wedding/engagement rings and your lovely paintwork .brid said:Jeez, so "Much To Do About Nothing".
Would never have another electric tailgate, dents in the same due to bad judgement are horrid.
My missus stand only 5'.2" tall, (in flats) weights <>8.5 stone (true figure is on a need to know basis and secret) but can handle this problem like a trooper. Electric tailgates indeed.
