    Default Power tailgate freaking out ... again!

    Went to a builders yard at weekend for some sand ... reversed in and before I could tell the helper it was electric, he was clicking the boot and tugging at the tailgate!
    Now it won't close properly. Sometimes it moves down about 6 inches and stops, then opens very slowly! Sometimes it gets almost half way, and sometimes it doesn't even move at all!!!
    Any idea's how to re-set this? It happened about a year ago and sorted itself out after about a week or so.
