750Li trunk wont go up or down when pushing button

My 06 760Li trunk quit working automatically, first it stop going down when pushing lid button and now it wont do anything (up or down). I can hear the motor run but barely. Once it is closed manually i can see it seal but thats all it does. Is there any hope????

Mine had the same problem. Remove the right hand side trimming cover inside the trunk, now the electric trunk lift pump is exposed, it should be full with a red oil, if yours is empty then their is a leak in the circuit. Remove the left trimming cover inside the trunk and look for oil leaking above the DVD changer, that means the metal cylinder above the DVD is leaking oil and is the cause of the problem and needs to be replaced with all the hoses till the pump. I have changed that and it is working just perfect.

Yes
I had the same problem. What I find more of a problem is that we r so spoiled that we refuse to manually lift and close our boots lol
But anyway I followed the instructions on the forum and just needed to add fluid to mine
It requires a special kind so get the right stuff. No leak was found just low on fluid. I filled it and worked with it several times and it's been perfect ever since
All the info was in the forum
Sorry I can't direct u to it but if u follow my thread it should be there
Hope this was helpful

Hi, great that you we both have got this problem fixed
Another problem I have which seems to be common among the E66 model, water leaking from the sliding roof inside the headliner and into the trunk of the car !! Have you faced same problem before ? And if so, did you get it solved ?? Thanks
