    Got to admit, I love mine too. So much easier to press a button to open boot when I've got hands full of shopping.

    Shouldn't take a lot to remove, just a case of removing the struts and a Tech 2 session I guess.

    if done properly..

    but if you have car to swap with.. you need to swap.

    Wiring in the tailgate (incl the button in the rear), motor, controlbox, stouts, wiring in from the BOX to the REC.

    Maybe it's ok if you use it now and then, but try it 20 times a day and you soon get fed up with waiting for it. You can't walk away and leave it 'cos half the time it don't shut, it then fly's open without a beep or anything and you've got your boot open while you'rs in a customer's house. Much easier to close it manually, then you know if it's shut or not. If anyone wants it and can do the Tech2 they're welcome to it. And before much longer I'll hopefully be making the indicators work properly 'cos they're another wonderful design!!! Not

    I think you can open and close yours manually too, if you want. Have you tried it?
