7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Hi everyone... I have some problems with the tail gate of my 2003 BMW 745li... first is that when I press the button to oppen it, the pump starts working and lifting the gate, but it doesnt fully open it, it stops liftifng when it is allmost in up position, but the pump keeps working... and the if I help it with my hent it reaches the upper point annd the pump stops... then after I take my hand the gate doesnt stay oppened, it starts slowly going down...

Does anyone what it's caused by, and how to fix it... Or can anyone showme a scheme how is the gate lifter working, so I can understand how the sistem works and can fix it my self???
