    Tailgate latch failed - how to remove trim?

    Hello!

    It appears that my tailgate latch has failed and so the boot does not close.

    I have bought a new one from eBay but I'm now looking at the boot and it is not particularly easy to understand what I need to do to take off the trim. It's a saloon version - fabric (not plastic).

    I have crawled through youtube and google but I am struggling to find anything that could help.

    Can anyone offer any assistance or guidance please?

    thank you!

    I'll add if it's not obvious from the forum that it's a B7 (2011) Passat - Saloon.

    I've found this video

    it is of an Audi B6/B7 - is this a similar design / similar to what I need to do?

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.
