2012 X5 power liftgate closes hard

Howdy, I recently bought a used 2012 X5 35i. The power rear liftgate drops normally to about 6 inches from latching and then slams shut. I've had other cars with power liftgates and all seem to gently close and latch. I saw a post mentioning that it can be adjusted by the dealer and since the nearest dealer is 3 hours from home, I'm wondering if anyone can advise me on how to adjust it.
