Tailgate piece fell off
 
Closed the tailgate on the X3 and this piece popped off:

Zooming in:

It's on the underside of the piece. Doesn't look like adhesive would work as it has very little to adhere to, so I'm thinking I need a new piece. Thoughts? Weird, eh?:dunno:

Looks like an edge. You could try gluing it and temporarily putting some tape until the glue dries, but I think you need a new part. Let us know.

I haven't seen that happen before...but it looks like you need part number 3. Unfortunately not cheap after you get it painted:

I did find it for you here for $148:

Cool. Thanks for the info!:thumbup: It's called a Finisher, eh?

While I'm at it, I was going to get a trunk load edge protector to prevent scratches, etc. Do you think part #51140418309 would be right? :dunno:

Anybody know the correct part # and where to get a trunk load edge protector for a 2007 X3?
