  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi guys i just bought a F11, which does have many scratches on the tailgate glass/back window. This is really annoying, and I want to know if changing the whole tailgate is a easy DIY or the glass can be replaced? Cant find any instructions..
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Purchased this a 2014 335xi for under half the market value due to these disclosed issues. I’ve lost all my hair giving it a go at repair. I am new to working on BMWs and have learned so much already. The seller said these issues appeared mostly around the same time so I hoped that it was a...

    The tailgate will open and close. Nothing seems to be in the way. When it closes, it latches but I can move the door slightly. Didn't noticed this slight movement before today. Any thoughts on how to fix this? The alarm from the "Tailgate Open" alert makes it impossible to drive this car.
  4. BMW i8 I12 (2014 - 2020)
    Hi I’ve managed to let my i8 run its battery flat. Blame bad weather and moving house :-( I have a plug in charger (mains powered) but it’s currently sat in the tailgate! I can get in the car with the key fob - but I see no way of manually popping the tailgate or using a key to open it... Anyone...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello everyone, I have an old E91 from 2005 and need a bit of help and advice with two separate problems. 1. The tailgate glass button has stopped working a few weeks ago. I have opened it and cleaned it and it intermittently worked (only a few times). I could most likely solve this problem...
  6. X5 G05 (2019 - Current)
    I am close to buying a 2020 X5. There are a couple of questions that I would greatly appreciate any information current owners can offer. 1. What is the maximum distance horizontally that the tailgate protrudes behind the rear bumper as it arcs upward. In other words when parked inside a garage...
  7. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Like many I enjoy modifying my vehicles. I have only had the X5 for a few months, but have managed to accomplish many interesting upgrades. This one turned out so fabulous that I figured it would be fun to share! I bet some of you out there will dig it, too. This one is for retrofitting the...

  9. F07 Gran Turismo (2010 - 2017)
    I was trying to find ways to close the tailgate on my 2017 550ix GT. Now when I press the button on the bottom of the tailgate the thing closes, beeps twice, then opens again. Can't drive it this way. What did I do?

  11. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi, Has anyone replaced the rubber tailgate seal on a F25 X3 ? I cannot find any videos or instructions online. Does the lower sill have to be unscrewed and inclipped or can the seal be pulled out and new one installed without unscrewing and unclipped? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    My wife said that something weird happened when she opened the lift gate glass today. She said there was a crazy noise, and the window got heavy. I figured it was some kind of spring Searched here found nothing, but I did find this on youtube. Maybe a DIY sticky?:dunno...
  14. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I recently purchased the electrical spindle drive motors, rear hatch control unit, and rear hatch button, with the purpose of retrofitting it to my F11. However, I missing the cable loom. I am looking for a diagram that can tell me which pins on th spindle drive motors goes to which pins on the...
  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Today my tailgate got stuck closed. It tries to open and moves about 1/2 inch, strains and stops (and doesn't close tight again). I never use my window lift - but I do know it used to work. I tested opening the window of the tailgate and it wouldn't open either. I got inside the back and...
  16. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Hi all, Excited to be part of the community! Quick question... Just picked up my brand new 2017 540 xdrive (fourth 5-series for me). I thought I got it very well equipped, including comfort access. Loved my drive home - phenomenal handling. Get home and there's no button for trunk...
  17. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Any ideas on how to fix this? I know water gets in and there may be loose wires. I can fix the leak but which wires? How do I test the lamp to see if I should just replace the assembly? Or should I just replace it anyways and not bother searching?
  18. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi, I have try to search here but could not find an answer. The problem is that the automatic tailgate will not close using any of the buttons. If I take out and put back in the fuse 121, 7,5A for det tailgate, it will close one time. Open it again and it will not close. When I push the button...
  19. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hey guys, so recently the passenger tailgate light (center half of tail light) stopped working, and I replaced the bulb and still nothing, I didn't replace the chip either. Instead I went with the entire part which I ordered from BMW and picked it up at the service center in my dealer. The piece...
  20. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi folks Very bizarre thing happening today. Whilst my boot is shut and secure the tailgate warning keeps appearing sporadically when I drive. It only comes on literally seconds after i take my foot off the break pedal if I have been stationary in traffic with my foot on the break. Once...
