NO, it was my mistake, but no. On of my mates got some new struts for his Passat wagon(02) and i was wrong. I didn't remember correctly. The new struts are indeed more powerful than the old ones but they can release their full power after the trunk is manully lifted about 15 cm. They have a great power so the trunk rises very quickly so it stops to its full opening with some ugly noise(bang!!!). So the new strus won't provide also a smooth open, they are just strong and push the trunk very powerful and quickly.

PS : We could also try to change the angle of struts so they could release their power more powerful. In the actual moment the struts are pushing the trunk in an angle that won't let them to release their full power instantly(after opening lid). So we could make some ball pins longer than OEM 1J6 827 439 A (ball pins of struts) :
This is the ideea :


but to replace the lower ball pins, not upper

So this is what i wanna try :

I actually noted that on the last page of the super long CCM thread. However, you still have to use the switch on the tailgate itself because it doesn't pop it enough to make it past the latch. I'd love to make this work though!!!

The use of one switch is fine. It's the present requirement, each and every time, to use another switch before using the lift gate switch that I find annoying.


Well, maybe not all that annoying, as I still haven't done the investigative work (as Madelgado outlined) to see if I can make the change to mine.

Sorry, run that by me again? You mean it is annoying that you first have to hit the switch on either the drivers door or the remote, then again on the hatch itself? Yeah, I agree. It should just be unlocked when the car is unlocked, so you only have to hit the one on the hatch itself. I'm sure that can be done. I'll look into that...

Hi. My ccm in my Passat B5.5 2004 is 1C0 959 799 B . Originally my trunk door always pops out only after pressing the trunk door latch. So I changed values in 04361,2,3 from 67 to 66 and now the trunk door pops out after pressing fob button or the drivers door button. And is great as I did self rising trunk door and now I can operate it from remote fob.
But after I changed the ccm codding, my trunk door latch is inactive when the car is unlocked. And this is bit annoying as every time when the car is unlocked and I need get in to the boot I have to press the drivers door switch or the fob button as the boot stays locked all the time. Not like before- just simply press the trunk door latch to get into the boot.
Now the latch is only active if I don't shut properly the trunk door-so I can press the latch, open and shut the door again. But after the door are closed properly, the latch is stop working.
Of course I tried rotate the trunk door key barrel in to other position but without any result, where before I could choose: one position, the rear latch is active after unlocking the car, and in another position is always inactive.
Anybody have Idea how to keep in the same time the pop out via remote and active trunk latch when car unlocked? Or it only could be done one or other. For example in A6 C5 estate You can pop out boot from remote or from the rear latch if the car is unlocked.
Thanks.
Regards Pat.

Correct - need VDS-PRO (or, Miguel's EasyCCM program), a serial (not USB) VAG 409.1 KKL cable, and (of course) a laptop with a serial port.
Create boot media (e.g. USB flash drive) with DOS. Boot laptop into DOS. Run VDS-PRO.

That's the easy part. A German company sells compression springs that install on the tailgate struts - they give it the initial lift, so that the gate struts (so long as they're in working order) can finish the job.
