...anymore. I found direction online to adjust the bottom car side hooks and moved them back slightly. This solved it.

Now I have a new issue:

When I open the tailgate with the rubber switch above the license plate it only opens about 18 inches and then stops. The setting in iDrive is for full open. If I use the button on the dash it usually will open all the way, but not 100% of the time.

This is annoying and now it is painful as I hit my head on the partially opened tailgate a few minutes ago. Ouch!

Can anyone tell me how to solve this partially opening tailgate issue?

(forgive the posts on 2 SITES).

A lot of driver presets get stored as key profile. Things like radio presets, etc.
Do both keys give same issue? It is possible tailgate opening height is preset to that key. Just a guess.

Overall, tailgate stops opening when there's a certain resistance encountered on the way. Check if it gets much harder (suddenly or increasing in resistance) to open the tailgate completely manually.
