Dear all,

My new 5008 has a smart electric tailgate.
If I have the key with me, and try to wave my foot beneath the tailgate, it should open.
But it's very temperamental.
Most of the time doesn't open, but suddenly decided to open.
Is there a specific way of doing it?

Many thanks

The foot sensor is exactly on the middle of the rear bumber, underneath. You should perform only a single "kick" maneuver and then there is a slight delay before the "beep" sound and the tailgate opening.

Do not try to perform several "kick" movements too fast, that will confuse the system. Do not try the double kick or sweep movement, like some other brands have.

On my car it works 90% of the time, even though I don't use it very often, it can be very comvenient sometimes.

Thank you. Will try that tomorrow.
My Peugeot dealer said it's a swipe.
This forum is much better that way!

Quite the point: it’s not a 100% result.
A single swipe, not too fast, generally does iT.
There should be two buttons to close the door, red one closes, on the left is a black one which when pressed will light the green LED. When pressed, swipe your foot and the door closes and central locking will actuate. A nice feature!

The kick does it.
But only 80% of the time.
Something better than nothing..
Swipe generally yealds a much lower result

Mine is made in 2020

Same here, it works about 80% of the time but has been very useful on occasions.
