Took me ages after getting my up! to discover that keeping the remote's tailgate button pressed for an extra second after the lights flash pops open the tailgate! It's not mentioned at all in my up!'s manual (Edition 05.2013, p.44), which says to use the remote to unlock, then to press the button on the tailgate to open. The Citigo's 05.2012 manual does say (p.29):gary02tdi said:should in theory take the tailgate clear of the catch.
