    Don't think it's widespread although that might change as manufacturers usually follow each other and release similar features, security and warning features.

    The RAV4 does it and on top of that, takes an eternity to open or close.

    I*d cheerfully do away with that feature.

    Yes, I had a RAV4 given to me as a hire car on one of the occasions my rear brake siezed. I hated the electric tailgate as it was so slow, plus when having to reverse park close to a wall at my former employer I had to stop it manually before it fully opened and hit the wall when I was taking my work bag out the back. It did have a warning label not to stop the tailgate manually, but needs must. This really put me off electric tailgates. Automation for automations' sake in my view. (Interestingly, my apostrophes are ok and not *). I thought it might be UK keyboard issues, but appears not.

    I agree, its really annoying. I asked the garage to disconnect it and they said that when they did this, it was connected to other bits that would then not work. There must be a way of switching the buzzer off.

    The manual infers that the beep volume can be changed, but I cannot tell if it means only when opening it using the fob.

    This is from Page 3-14:

    A beep sound is heard for confirmation when the doors and the liftgate are locked/unlocked using the request switch. If you prefer, the beep sound can be turned off. The volume of the beep sound can also be changed. Refer to Personalization Features on page 9-12. Use the following procedure to change the setting.

    1. Switch the ignition off and close all of the doors and the liftgate.
    2. Open the driver's door.
    3. Within 30 seconds of opening the driver's door, press and hold the LOCK button on the key for 5 seconds or longer (All of the doors and the liftgate are locked and unlocked when the LOCK button on the key is pressed and held for 5 seconds.). The beep sound activates at the currently set volume. The setting changes each time the LOCK button on the key is pressed and the beep sound activates at the set volume. (If the beep sound has been set to not activate, it will not activate.) 4. The setting change is completed by doing any one of the following:

    -Switching the ignition to ACC or ON.
    -Closing the driver's door.
    -Opening the liftgate.
    -Not operating the key for ten seconds.
    -Pressing any button except the LOCK button on the key.
    -Pressing a request switch.
    Personalization Features on page 9-12 says this can also be changed from the center display.

    The buzzer is inside the back door. If you take the trim off you can disconnect it or put a bit of masking tape on it.

    That is just for the beep you hear when locking/unlocking your vehicle, not for the repeated beeping when opening/closing the rear hatch.
    I'm going to try the masking tape method to muffle it a little.

    Thanks Anchorman!

    The buzzer has a rectangular shaped "horn" opening that I stuffed with some 5 mil thick heavy felt and then taped over it. Measured decibels of the beep went from 89 to 59 measured at head height about 2 foot from door, which is the same decibel level of the door closing itself. Much more tolerable and less harsh now when you hit the open or close button but still plenty to let someone know. Sorry for huge pics, I can never figure out how to adjust image sizes.

    Aye, that*s it. It will always make some noise left connected because it resonates through the bracket.

    Good job. Mine doesn*t bother me so I*ll leave it,

    Question, can a well placed magnet taped down be a temp fix. Lasting long enough to get home from the big box store. I will look into how it senses that the door is closed.

    To open the lower trim you just have to keep pulling it? I pulled but seems to be stuck pretty tight :/ I want to muffle mine too.

    There is a small plastic circle just to the left of the latch, you need to pop it out and remove the screw there. Then slowly work around the edges and it will take some force but they will pull free. I did not completely remove it, but just pulled it down enough to work. You will need to disconnect and pull out the rear hatch button to the right of the latch once you can get your hands in there. That will allow you to pull the trim down even more to have room to work. Hope that helps.

    Take care. The edges of that trim are sharp.
