Tailgate Hatch Clicks/Hesitates Before Opening

If this has been addressed elsewhere, I apologise. I searched and didn't find this specific problem.

My 2011 X5M Tailgate or Hatch WILL Open, but most of the time it will only open after I have pressed the dashboard button or key fob button 2 or 3 times. This is accompanied by some clicking and slight movement indicating an attempt to open, before it finally succeeds in opening.

I DO NOT have any problems with it closing from any of the buttons, as many seem to struggle with.

Lock mechanism? One of the Two automatic opener motors out/going bad? Tensioner? (I have no idea where to find the tensioner, but heard someone mention one somewhere)

Can any of you fine blokes point me in the correct direction?

Thanks much,
Michael Kinzer
