Anyone have a problem with the automatic tailgate? Mine is about a year old and now groans when it is first opened. Tends not to do it on a second and subsequent opening. Obviously sounds like a lubrication problem but I've tried to remedy this without success. Back to the dealer for a warranty claim?

Yes. Take it back. On my last visit [to replace leaking rear shocks] the service writer noticed it and the speed of opening and they replaced them and some other part ... Now no more groan.

@FozzieBalou Was he able to change the speed ?

My gate just sits there after the beep then lifts. Its too long a delay before going up.
