    Any suggestions please where I can get retrofit power assisted hatchback opening?

    Hello
    I drive a Mercedes 2011 A180cdi Classic, the old A class. I am disabled with MS and
    use a small disability scooter with a hoist from the boot, but it has
    become increasingly difficult for me to manoeuvre around the back corner
    of the car and open the boot.

    What I need to continue to be independent is push-button power assistance
    to swing the boot open from inside the car but I cannot find anyone who can
    retrofit this to the car. I know that new models have it but this model has
    been ideal for me in every other way.
    Can you suggest anyone who may be able to help please?
    Best wishes
    Howard

    Getting a retro fit to meet your needs is going to be difficult and expensive. That is if you can find someone who can do the job.
    If you get Mobility benefit then I would suggest that you give customer service a call and explain your needs to them. They may be able to sign post you to a company that supplies and fits Auto rear door opening.
    Good luck
