Question Retrofit Power Tailgate

Has anyone been able to (or even had any interest) in retrofitting power tailgate on a G20 (specifically an M340). Thanks!

I'm not sure all G20s are wired for this feature. Here are the major components needed:

51247430644: automatic trunk lid mechanism (Spindle drive, tailgate)

51247441014: automatic trunk lid mechanism (Trunk lid lock)

61319275121: automatic trunk lid mechanism (Switch for trunk-Centerlock)

The control unit appears to be the same across the line.

Thanks for the info! I saw it could be "retrofitted" to the F30, a car that didn't even offer it as an option, so I was hoping it would be simpler to do since it at least is an option for the g20. Thanks again!

That sure is going to cost more than the $250 option when purchasing new.

Please keep us posted

I haven't attempted this yet since I'm not super mechanically inclined. But hopefully someone much more capable than I am will give it a shot.

I’ve seen the F30 video and hopefully it shouldn’t be too different?
