My daughter's X3 has a damaged rear light on the tailgate drivers side. We have obtained a replacement but I can't get the old one off. I have removed the small access panel on the inside of the tailgate, and removed the two 8mm nuts, and can see the 3 clips that hold the light in place...
Hello people, I need your advice,
A week ago I had a backup battery of the anti robbery tracking system replaced (an inssurance requirement in my country). The technician worked on the wiring below the glove compartment, and under the trunk panel on the passenger side.
Since then, I have to...
Hi - advice needed please! I used to close my top tailgate (non-powered) gently and would hear a motor whirring and the tailgate would be pulled closed; I think this is called ‘Soft Close’? Anyway, while it will close and lock, I can’t hear the motor whir and it’s not being fully closed so it...

The car has been standing for several months and battery is totally dead. I tried charging it but the charger doesn't go into charge mode even after leaving it connected for more than twelve hours. Tried jump leads just to get central locking to operate but there is absolutely no sign of life. I...
Has anyone replaced the rubber tailgate seal on a F25 X3 ?
I cannot find any videos or instructions online.
Does the lower sill have to be unscrewed and inclipped or can the seal be pulled out and new one installed without unscrewing and unclipped?
Any help would be appreciated.
The glass tail gate section on my E46 Touring keeps randomly unlocking itself. When it does there is a ticking noise coming from it. It can on for weeks not doing it then it suddenly starts up again - it’s very annoying. Anyone any ideas please?
Hello All, my E91 has a stiff tailgate that means I have to push it most if the way up. I have had the struts replaced and this improved things a little (they were rusty oddly) but still not great. The stiffness is definitely in the hinges and not a struts issue because the rear window is stiff...

In a previous ownership my E61 has obviously had an electrical fault somewhere in the tailgate.
Both hinges have had the black conduit for the wiring hacked apart in the most Heath Robinson fashion to enable access to the loom and/or enable a new look to be passed through.

I'm experiencing what appears to be a common failure with the tailgate on my E61 - the soft-close does not operate to close the door properly so the dash warns it's open and the interior light stays on.
I should add that the soft-close does trigger/motor with the release button...

I am missing the drivers side (right hand drive f36) plastic cover which gives access to the rear light from inside the boot. Please see attached photo
Any ideas where I can get one from? Tried BMW UK and they sell the whole boot cover including both plastic covers.
Since I have bought my E91 its tailgate glass keep falling down if I dont hold it at all times. I thought that is how it should be so I didn't really think about it - until today. I met a friend of mine that also has a similar E91, he needed to work something on the trunk and asked why...
Just managed to get my tailgate cylinder/strut fitted back on the car as it had popped of on previous owner. However it only seems to go up and down sometimes and sometimes stops half way etc, boot also seems to jolt sideways when shutting/opening etc.
I’m now beginning to wrap my car up ready for daily duties but when I was changing the rear hatch struts over I noticed some surface rust on the inner skin/panel of my tailgate on both sides. See below pictures taken earlier this evening for reference -
It’s just say bubbling on...
