BMW X3 Owners Manual / Controls / Opening and closing / Comfort Access / Opening and closing the tailgate with no-touch activation

The tailgate can be opened with no-touch activation using the remote control you are carrying.

With automatic tailgate operation, it can also be closed with no-touch activation. Two sensors detect a forward-directed foot motion in the center of the area at the rear of the car and the trunk lid opens and/or closes.

Foot movement to be carried out

Do not touch vehicle

1. Place in the center behind the vehicle, about an arm's length from the vehicle rear.

2. Move a foot in the direction of travel as far under the vehicle as possible and immediately pull it back. With this movement, the leg must pass through the ranges of both sensors.
