Well I just bought a 1993 525iT and would like to find out how the tail gate is suppose to work. The Bentley is not much help with the touring car and the guy I talked to at BMW Manhattan said there is a button on the wiper elbow that will open the glass..... I can not find a button. What I have found are two push lever areas above the license plate center and to the right. They do not seem to work but then again I'm not sure how it's all suppose to work any way. Are there electrical relays? One more item please... when I push the driver door lock button down which sends the others into the lock mode, the drives button pops up before I can get the door closed. Is this normal. Thanks in advance... smokefxguy.
