    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.

    Dear Bambam,
    When you mentioned "rear shocks", do you mean the rear tailgate hydraulic shock?

    Thanks for the info,

    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.

    I guess there is a sensor or motor in the tail gate shocks that went bad. So they replaced them both. The shop formen said they keep getting the code while opening the door, until they replace the parts.

    Mine will be going in to have the rear hatch looked at some time in the next couple weeks. Opens fine every time, but 30% of the time it will not close. Once I close it manually it will work fine a few times again.
