Re: Frozen Power Liftgate becoming a pain in the a$$...it's embarassing!

Ok, this is going to sound like a stupid question, but - to manually close it, is it necessary to disengage something or do you just push to close it as you would on a normal liftgate?

My experience: just pull down on either of the handholds or the bottom edge and close the liftgate using moderate force (there is small resistance from the power actuator and you can hear it releasing as it compresses), and close the gate all the way. No need to slam it. The locking mechanism will automatically pull the closed gate a final few millimetres and latch it.
