Yup, there are 2 (internal) metal spring clips that hold the the assembly in place - and they aren't sold separately unfortunately.

Yup, set Converse+ to "Ask on Exit", then set to "Reduced Guard" methinks, based on memory.

I'm reading this in amusement.

It's all to do with safety - I call it life - and life doesn't discern between victim or perpetrator.

Ford doesn't care if you lose your pride and joy due to your own folly.

Leaving the car with your key, engine running, even for a moment, without duly shutting the engine down, is such a common practice nowadays that owners, not surprisingly, actually believe it's their right to do so - when it's only a convenience... and it's a convenience one consciously practices in total disregard for security and safety. What is sadly lacking nowadays is the sense of accountability.

And yes, my S-Max runs till dry too.

My 2p.

In Topic: 2007 S-Max Tailgate Won't Open

You needn't close the tailgate to check if the unlatch motor is operational.


Open the tailgate and trigger the latch closed with a screwdriver. Then see if it unlatches with either the fob or unlock button.


This will exclude any issues related to misalignment.


If it still doesn't unlatch, then it would be down to


1. Unlock signal actually confirmed at the lock assembly. You ideally need a wiring diagram and a multimeter for this.


2. Wiring integrity as gregers says.


3. The lock/latch motor itself. There is a TSB out on this, so it isn't an isolated issue as one might assume.
