Does anyone know if the manual tailgate in 2019 forester allow you to set rear gate opening height? I am thinking about getting the base model which does not include the power rear gate but the rear gate opening seems too high. I am wondering if you can set at a lower opening height?

G'day & Welcome aboard!

I don't know but am guessing you'd probably need to replace with shorter struts or have some pressure taken out of the existing struts. Over here I've used a mobile service to have stuff like this done.

The Touring trim has a height set/memory function. I can't speak to the other trim lines.
In the attached photo, the control is third button from the left, top row.

I have a SPORT with the power rear hatch...it is the same as @copwriter stated above and I have the same switch on the dash to adjust the height.

A manual tailgate has no motor so, therefore, has no way to control the height. It's either open or it's closed...period1

Nope. This can only be done with the power option.
