My wife and I both find it slightly difficult to find the exact spot on the tailgate opener to press, for it to release the lock. It is a quite small button in the release pad to find with your finger.

In order to stop management tutting about it I have made it much easier.

I have attached to the release pad two small cupboard door plastic stops using double backed foam tape. It is now easy to find and operate. Job done.

An excellent solution Alan which I intend to follow if you don't mind as we both have the same issue with opening the tail gate. Thank you.

I'm pleased to be of help. I posted the idea here fully expecting I was not alone and am surprised that KIA (and some Hyundai models) didn't make the opener more friendly.

Neat idea.  Wonder why it wasn't made with that already moulded in.
