Emergency liftgate safety release

Your vehicle is equipped with the emergency liftgate safety release lever located on the bottom of the liftgate. When someone is inadvertently locked in the luggage compartment.

The liftgate can be opened by doing as follows:

  1. Input the mechanical key (1) into the hole.

  2. Push the mechanical key to the right.

  3. Push up the liftgate.

  • No one should be allowed to occupy the cargo area of the vehicle at any time. The cargo area is a very dangerous location in the event of a crash.

  • Use the release lever for emergencies only. Use with extreme caution, especially while the vehicle is in motion.


Make sure there are no people or objects around the liftgate before opening or closing the liftgate. Wait until the liftgate is open fully and stopped before loading or unloading cargo from the vehicle.


Do not grasp the part supporting the liftgate (gas lifter), as this may cause serious injury.
