How are you guys doing with the handsfree opening of the rear hatch, by kicking under the rear bumper?

Mine seems to work less than 50% of the time.

I went underneath the car, looking for some sensor covered in mud, but don't see anything in there.

Make sure you are in the center of the car and kick front to back. Side to side movement most of the time I find is not detected.

I also find the "sweet spot" is to kick straight in and back out, and be very centered. Side to side doesn't seem to work. I also have my foot quite high, almost touching the car when I swing it in. It's been very reliable for me once I learned what the car wanted.
