Good afternoon, I have a 1997 V70 XC and the tailgate

Customer Question

Good afternoon,


I have a 1997 V70 XC and the tailgate will not unlock/open.

The remote unlocks all other doors. There is no keyhole on the external tailgate, there is no handle on the inside to open it with either, as there was on my other '97 V70.

When opening with the remote you can hear all the others opening, but no sound from the tailgate area.

Any ideas?

Kind regards
