    I have only the driver door self-present to avoid wear and tear on the other door handles. However, sometimes I need to get into the back seat. The only way I can figure out how to do it is to double-tap the top of the keyfob to present the rest of the doors. Tapping on the rear door handle doesn't do anything. Is there any way to do it without the keyfob? Sometimes my key is in my gym bag or something and not easily accessible.

    Or reach around the driver's seat and manually open the back door. I tried doing the driver only present but got tired of the hassle occasionally opening a back door created so went back to present all. First world probs...

    I'd have to go and look but don't all doors present if you use the fob to unlock (double press the roof)? I had mine presenting just the driver door and as I recall that is how I got passengers in.
