Just to clarify , on my hitch bike carrier when taking the bikes up an down , inadvertently tailgate is triggered. i wanted to avoid that ( for now i had placed some rubber pad at the point where the gate touches the carrier during opening.

Thanks for the clarification. This is good to know and all the more reason to deactivate this feature as I am currently shopping for a hitch-mount bike rack.

When you have your bike rack mounted, plug in one of these 7 pin to 4 pin adapters (with LED indicators). Foot activation will just unlatch the trunk, but not open it since the Touareg thinks a trailer is attached. $10.

If you have a blank plate covering the 7 pin wiring, the 7 pin electrical plug is cheap ($15) and easy to install
