Hi, I’m a newbie here on the forum so please forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong thread.
I have a 2019 E class estate, since I bought it last year the tailgate has a mind of its own...it opens by itself quite frequently....say once a month, I have often come out to go to work to find it open!.....any ideas what this might be or is the car possessed!!!

I’m sure this has come up before and I don’t recall any solutions.

The only thing I can add is to ask whether you keep the key in your trousers pocket and whether the boot open button is getting accidentally pressed when you sit down, for example?

Edit... try searching “mercedes tailgate opens by itself” on Google
