Hatch Pop Kit - With Hatch Release Button

SKU: ES3098089

Quick Overview

Make your hatch pop open with a simple touch of your key fob or interior mounted button

Availability: In stock



Want to make your hatch pop open like magic? This kit includes everything you need to make your hatch open with the touch of a button on your key fob or interior mounted button, with the included hatch release button kit!

After the MK5 generation, Volkswagen omitted the hatch release button from it's hatchbacks. This meant that you could not open your hatch until you have removed the key from the ignition and held the hatch release button on the key remote for 3 seconds. Standing behind your car in the rain is not the ideal time to remember that your hatch does not unlock with the rest of your doors.

Luckily, Double Apex and ECS Tuning have combined efforts to come up with a solution. Designed and assembled by Double Apex and tested in-house by ECS, the Hatch Release Button Kit installs in front of your shifter with the same fit, finish, and lighting as the other buttons in your vehicle. As long as the vehicle isn't in motion, just a quick press of the button will release the latch and allow you to open the hatch as soon as you walk around to the rear of the car. This is also especially useful for getting groceries or other items loaded into the cargo area without getting out of the car.

ECS and has also provided an online PDF of coding instructions for the Schwaben by Foxwell Professional VAG Scan Tool to accompany the printed installation instructions provided by Double Apex.


Kit includes:

  • Specially Valved ECS Tuning Hatch Struts
  • Hatch Strut Ball Studs
  • Hatch Strut Ball Stud Washers
  • Double Apex Hatch Release Button Kit
    • Features:
      • Designed for your Volkswagen's interior
      • Matches factory finish and lighting
      • Printed Installation Instructions
      • PDFs of Coding and Installation Instructions 

*As to be expected the hatch will be more difficult to close than with the factory hatch struts. However, with a slight increase in force over the factory hatch struts, you will be used to this slight change in no time.
