    Default Tailgate not shutting properly

    I have a prefacelift hatchback.

    This seems to have gotten gradually worse, but basically everytime I shut my boot it never shuts properly, always have to lift it back up and give it a proper slam (sometimes several times before it shuts properly, it's not right and I'm starting to get concerned my spoiler or window is going to break when I shut it.

    Has anyone else had this problem? What could be the cause and how do I fix it?

    Thanks in advance

    Try adjusting the catch, the one on the inside of the rear boot panel, maybe its just slipped.
