PAK is flaky at best. Sometimes I can only get into the car. Sometimes I can only use it to drive. And sometimes I can only use it to open the trunk. Rarely am I able to consistently do all three.

I have never had luck with a foot "swipe" it only ever works for me if I kick forward. Also never tried it without the FOB.

I can definitely get mine to work side to side, but it needs to be a big sweeping motion.
Just to add to this, the two sensor bars are mounted transversely, which is why they instruct an inward kick and not a side-to-side sweep. The PS2 is one of the only cars I've used with this feature that works reliably. Many other cars use a swipe but in my experience the detection is nowhere near as good as the PS2.

When you have the handover in the UK, they advise to sweep, so country by country, as always, the advice differs.

Yeah I'd say that's a poorly trained Polestar rep. Check the manual:

Here also told:
“Stand one metre back from car. Kick straight forward in the middle.. do not sweep and do not touch car”
Works consistently with key in pocket… works intermittently with PAK
