    So, I've read these are a common issue to go out on the E70's. I've got an '07, and the rear hatch actuator is starting to make some interesting noises, and I wanted to reach out to confirm the issue prior to spending the $325 for the new part. I am pretty sure it is the actuator assembly in the lower hatch that may be getting weak, but there is also a part in the upper hatch (the release). I am assuming that the part in the lower hatch is the actual motor that pulls the hatch close and locks it; am I correct in this? Any help would be appreciated!

    Are you talking about the lock actuator or the actuator to lift the tailgate?

    The lock actuator that pulls the hatch shut.

    The lock actuator for the e70 is located in the top hatch door. What noises are you hearing, does it latch ok?
