I'm locked out of the tailgate in my '09 Cabrio. The release switch has failed. I've searched long and hard for any help breaking in, forced entry, etc but I'm not getting any usable instruction. Evilution is working on it (the "force entry" on the coupe is very simple) but so far, no one can get me in. Has anyone out there had any success with manual entry for a cabrio hatch??
Thanks,
Not So Zoomy

Hatch lock-out

Hi Smart 1,
I saw that solution but I wasn't successful at first and I wasn't willing to damage anything by forcing the issue. Evilution has now posted the "force entry" instructions for the Cabrio with precise locations for access holes to trip the latch mechanisms. I'm happy to say that this procedure worked perfectly and took less time than it has taken to respond to your kind advice.
Happy Zooming!
Dave
