This lifting mechanism strut is located on the right side (passenger side of US / LHD model E70 X5), and is found on 2007-2013 model BMW X5 that had the added convenience items such as the automatic tail gate lifting mechanism. If your rear trunk hatch won't open on its own anymore, it's likely that one or both of the rear spindle drive units has gone bad, and no longer has the torque to lift the the rear hatch. If that's the case, this brand new Genuine BMW (right) trunk opening strut can be swapped with the faulty unit to fix and restore functionality to your automatic rear hatch / trunk lift gate.
