Rear tail gate
About a week after we bought our Evoque we started to have problems with the rear tail gate not working. When we hit the button to close it it would not do anything. Plus it was an intermittent problem, luckly it was not working for the dealer when I took it in.
Turns out it was the rear shocks that control it went out. Please be aware of this if you have the same problem. We were the first with this issue, at least what Land Rover told the Dealership.

Nuts, that's no fun at all.
Hopefully not a production wide problem.
When you mentioned "rear shocks", do you mean the rear tailgate hydraulic shock?
Thanks for the info,
Yes, I am talking about that.
What exactly has to be done to fix this. I have the same problem
Ive had it in a few times for it. I found out how to instantly fix it but it sometimes comes back.
If you have the problem, close it. Open it again with the outside button and as its opening, push the button to close it near the top before it stops by itself. It should work after that.
Yes, They replaced them because a motor or a sensor went out in one of them. I was the first to bring this to there attention. Make sure that we all bring this to the dealership attention.
