Audi A4: Luggage compartment lid

General information

WARNING

  • Applies to: vehicles with anti-theft alarm system: When the vehicle is locked from the outside, no one, especially children, should remain in the vehicle, because the windows can no longer open from the inside. Locked doors make it more difficult for emergency workers to enter the vehicle, which puts lives at risk.
  • Always close and lock the luggage compartment lid and the doors when the vehicle is not in use. Otherwise someone such as a child could enter the vehicle through the luggage compartment and become locked inside it. To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or around the vehicle.
  • To reduce the risk of injuries by pinching, make sure that no one is in the operating area of the luggage compartment lid when closing, especially near the hinges, at the upper and lower edges of the lid, or all around the edge of the lid in general.
  • After closing the luggage compartment lid, make sure that it is latched. The luggage compartment lid could open suddenly while driving, which would increase the risk of an accident.
  • Never drive with the luggage compartment lid ajar or open, because poisonous gases from the surrounding area can enter the vehicle interior and increase the risk of asphyxiation.
  • If there is a luggage rack (such as a bicycle rack) on the luggage compartment lid, the luggage compartment lid may not open completely under certain circumstances or it could close by itself if open due to the extra weight. Therefore, the open luggage compartment lid must be given additional support or the cargo must first be removed from the luggage rack.
  • Applies to: vehicles with power-operated or sensor-controlled luggage compartment lid: Pay careful attention when closing the luggage compartment lid. Otherwise, you could cause serious injury to yourself or others despite the pinch protection.

Note

The luggage compartment lid can bump into objects such as the garage ceiling when opening and become damaged.
