Also:
If you open the liftgate to where you'd like it to stop all the time, then hold down on the little button (located on the left side in the trunk) that usually closes it, until it beeps, then it will always open to the spot you left it at.

Wow. So they finally solved the mystery problem which has been thorn in the bu** for many owners. Any idea from which model year is this procedure applicable?
Is it only for Pachy’s ?

Sorry, I don't know the answer to your questions, I was just passing on a post from the Facebook group. I am embarrassed to admit that I haven't actually tested this on my van, since the height of the lift gate is not an issue in my garage.

The question was only meant as an FYI to others who do have the issue. I don’t have the problem either, so never tested this solution. Thanks.

This didn’t work on my ‘19 PacHy either unfortunately (maybe fortunately as I don’t want to give up any clearance under it when I’m loading stuff).

I am going to try cleaning out directly in front of the van so I can pull in another foot or so and see if that gets me the clearance I need to not worry about it hitting. I set my garage to open as much as it can and the lowest panel of the garage still barely touches the rear wiper cap.

I've also tried the same on my 2019 Pac Hy Limited, does not appear to work. The person in the FB group looks like he bought his Pacifica in May 2019--possibly a mid-year improvement?

I tried these steps a few times:
- Push the rear hatch release on the rear hatch
- Push the rear hatch release again to get it into "manual" mode
- Stopped/held the rear hatch open at the point where i want it (tested a few different heights)
- Held down the square inside hatch button for (seconds)

No confirmation beep, no change in the opening height.

I'm also interested in making a permanent change on the liftgate height. Has anyone figured out if the gas cylinder stop is adjustable?
