Holy crap, you beat me to it! I was looking into the same retrofit next on my list. I see you are ahead of the game as you have got everything out of a salvaged vehicle. I found a Touring at a local autowreckers but they won't sell any power tailgate parts as they want to sell the rear of the vehicle as a complete unit.

Anyhow, from the limited research I did, here is the list of parts required for this project:

POWER TAILGATE MOTOR DRIVE UNIT
POWER TAILGATE CONTROL UNIT
OUTER HANDLE SWITCH
INSIDE TAILGATE SWITCH
TAILGATE LATCH ASSEMBLY (CLOSER UNIT)
LEFT PINCH SENSOR
RIGHT PINCH SENSOR
TAILGATE OUTSIDE BEEPER
TAILGATE INSIDE BEEPER
DASHBOARD POWER TAILGATE SWITCH
POWER TAILGATE TRANSMITTER (KEYFOBB)
TRIM PANELS ON TAILGATE

The power tailgate also connects to the MICU (Multiplex Integrated Control Unit) which in turn connects to the B-CAN BUS line.

Now I wasn't sure if the MICU on the Touring is different from the MICU on the non-touring model without the power tailgate. Also I wasn't sure if the MICU needs to be re-programmed at the dealer for it to work. The dealer will have to program a new keyfobb for you but that shouldn't be a problem.

Keep me posted on how this goes and I'll be glad to help if I can because I might be doing it next! Make sure you take lots of pic's of the install!

I bought a remote Key FOB with tailgate button on ebay and i already reprogram it and it works just fine, lock and unlock L and R side door (tried tailgate button but nothing happen)
- i do have outside beeper but i never knew there was inside beeper, do you know where is the inside beeper locate at?
- Still too cold to work outside now for me, i live in IN, hopefully weather will be better next month

Do you think it's possible to just have an closer assembly so you can "soft close" the trunk?

Never thought about that! I guess it would be possible. Of course you would still have to run most of the wiring, so you might as well install the motor. Plus it's a nice safety feature to have the pinch sensors especially with kids so the motor doesn't kick in if something is in the way.

ALL the doors and trunk have the soft close motors on my new BMW. I love it!

The 5 PIN connector you have shown in your pic is NOT for the power tailgate. I believe this connects to the driver's side door harness.

You do not need to buy the whole dash harness. The power tailgate connections to the switch are actually on the big 22 PIN WHT connector. There are only two wires you need to tap into...you can do this yourself. The other two are for illumination which you can tap into any other switch.

Here are the PIN connections on the POWER TAILGATE DASH SWITCH (5 PIN Light GRN):

PIN 1 YEL/BLU connects to power tailgate - PIN22 on 22PIN WHT connector
PIN 2 WHT/BLK connects to power tailgate - PIN20 on 22PIN WHT connector
PIN 3 -
PIN 4 RED connects to (-) illumination
PIN 5 RED/BLK connects to (+) illumination

Remember on the female connectors, you count the PINs from the front pin side of the connector. See the attached pic...

I see in your parts you have the tailgate cover. I know this needs to be replaced in your van because the new one has a cut out for the rear tailgate switch. But do you also have to replace the left pillar cover and tailgate side covers too?? I don't think so...

- I just check the wire color on my 22 pins WHT connector , The WHT/BLK on pin4 & the YEL/BLU wire on pin5




EXL RES Wire

22 pins WHT connection


EXL RES dash harness



- EXL RES L kick panel connectors


- Touring L Kick panel connectors


Is the wire totally difference from US maker and Canada maker??

The wire colors could be different. Do not follow the wire color, you must follow the PIN number! PIN 20 and PIN 22 are the ones you need!

Looks like you already have the dash harness! Replacing the complete dash harness might be a lot of work. You will have to take apart the dash completely to replace all the wiring! The connector on the back of the power tailgate switch should be a 5 PIN Light green color. See if you can just separate this connector from the rest of the harness and tap into the back of PIN 20 and PIN 22 on the other WHT connector.

Hope that helps...
