It's not a trunk, so there's no popper. Since it is a hatch, like any other car with a hatch out back, there is a release from the outside. As Moriarty indicated, unlock the hatch (either by pressing unlock twice on the keyfob or using the power unlock toggle on the driver's door), then step up behind the car, place your hand underneath the lip above the license plate, and when you feel underneath, you will hit a plastic/rubber bar. Push upward on it to engage the electronic latch release. Once it is released, the hatch will lift open a few inches and you can then lift it completely open.

Ed, you should write the paragraphs for owner's manuals.

That was one of the first things I had to do when I got the car. I was transferring in all the crap from my old car into the new one.

Not paying attention means you dont understand very simple things. Like what if the trunk monkey (that is installed in every tC) would have died then he would have a really bad smell in the car, and not know how to get rid of it. lol

Damn, I was gypped! Somebody must have stolen my trunk monkey because there wasn't one in my tC when I bought it! I'm gonna go yell at my salesperson this morning about this, I tell you!








Oh, wait a minute... I am my salesperson.... damn, damn, damn.....
