  1. Driving with rear hatch open

    Touareg Exterior Mods
    Not sure where to post this. But I have several times needed to carry cargo that is longer than the rear cargo area. This has resulted a bit of difficulty finding a way to tie down the rear hatch to keep it partially closed. I have for now used a tie down strap wrapped around one rear strut and...
  2. 2011 T3 Rear Hatch Won't Open

  6. Closing Rear Hatch Using Key

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Is it possible to close the rear hatch from the key or button on the driver's side door? In the manual and from my testing this doesn't seem to be possible, but maybe there is a workaround or hack of some-sort to make this possible? It would be really convenient if I could close the rear hatch...
