long as the tailgate can be secured in the closed position & aint likely to become detached should be fine :)

Hello
Many thanks for your reply.
So if I show the MOT station that the tailgate can be opened from the inside, the faulty lock motor should not be a reason for failure?
Have a good weekend 😊

Hello vonsworld welcome to the forum,
one of the reasons for refusing to carry out the test is..

A proper examination can't be carried out because any door, tailgate, boot, engine cover, fuel cap or other device designed to be easily opened can’t be easily opened.

suggest you inform the station or tester about your tailgate & see if they would object to you opening it prior to test

Hello
I have a Citroen Nemo multispace with a tailgate. The tailgate lock is operated by a motor which has failed since the last MOT.

This means that the tailgate cannot be opened from the outside, but can be opened from the inside using a small lever on the lock.

Is this relevant to the MOT please?
