If you are kicking sideways it doesn't work. You have to kick straight in about 4 - 6" off center under the bumper (beside the hitch if you have one). Then step back, wait a few seconds and the door will pop open. Works 99% of the time for me. When it doesn't work I find that I didn't quite kick up far enough.

Mine actually works if I sweep my foot sideways. The key is to wait because there is a pronounced delay before it starts to open.

While we're complaining... When you push the button to close the trunk, it closes immediately. Right onto you head if not careful. Nice that there is a pause when opening, how about one when closing?

Some things you only need to learn once.

Thanks for the advice to be patient and step back after the kick. That worked for me. For my other vehicle, I kick and the tail lights flash and then soon after it opens. For the Q7, I'd kick, nothing, kick, nothing, kick, nothing! Now, kick, step back, wait, and it opens. Not a feature I'll use much, but good to know just in case.

Tried a couple times today. I can get it to open with a kick on the right side fairly consistently. Specifically, in the same location as the park assist sensor.
