The tailgate on my 2013 Volvo XC60 has become almost impossible to open. The switch in the tailgate makes a clicking noise when pushed, but it takes 5-10 attempts, sometimes more, before the tailgate will release and open. I don't think it is the switch itself because the keyfob release button will not open the tailgate either. Is there a solenoid or something involved that may be going bad, or is this the typical behavior of a failing tailgate switch. Also, is this a big deal to repair, or is it something that I can do myself?

I too am having an issue with the tailgate not opening on my '12 XC60. There seems to be a lot written about other models, but not this one. I'll keep looking.

I am sorry, I should have updated my post. I didn't receive any reply from this forum, so took it into the dealer which cost me $401.00! Here is the part they replaced, and it has been working fine for over a year:


I don't know of any reason this repair could not be done by the owner if they are even the least bit handy. Best of luck!
