    Page 10 of the manual reads:
    1. Open the liftgate, then lower it to the desired opening height.
    2. Press and hold the button on the underside of the liftgate for two seconds until you hear a confirmation beep.
    3. Confirm that you have set it to the desired height by closing the liftgate, then reopening it.

    I have done the procedure and it works, but I've gone too conservative and I keep hitting the latch with my head (it hurts!) - so I'd like to go _higher_ than my current setting.

    Is it the same procedure except I'd push it further up after it's completely open or should I reset something so it goes all the way up and readjust from there?

    Yes, same procedure. Just manually push it higher and set it. No need to reset it so it goes all the way up before you lock in the new higher height.
