Default Hydrolic tailgate retrofit

Hi all. I'm looking for the wiring diogram for retrofitting the power lift tailgate to my e61. I have all the parts I/e

Midule
Hydrolic pump with struts
Switch

I can't for the like of me find any info at all on the wiring of this. I would really like to speak to a member who has done this if possible.

Thank you in advance for replies. 👍

He. Thanks for reply. I was also yold to look for this by another member but I've searched all over the net. Can't seem to find any wiring for the HKL module or hydrolic tailgate wiring.
Is there a website with all these on?

Thanks

PM me your email address and i will see what i can dig up for you. Also, I would need to know your specific model year and build date (i.e. if it's a 2007, what month/year was it built in). sometimes there are subtle wiring differences based on build date

Thank you all for your help. Unfortunately no I have no experience at all with reading these diograms, looks very daunting to me. I was looking for one that maybe had been simplified on the net somewhere such.

Red wire goes to blue wire

Green goes to switch

Etc etc

Guess I'm m not so lucky.

My module has about 8 wires coming out of it but they all go to a 3 pin connector. So at least 2 of the 8 go to 1 pin and so on.

Also have 3 wires coming off the hydraulic pump.

Very confusing for me. I'm fully capable of soldering the wires in and doing a neat tidy job but have no clue what the diogram means above if I'm honest.

in that case, read up. the terminology and nomenclature used in most wiring diagrams is pretty consistent. there are plenty of youtube videos on this topic and its quite simple once you get the hang of it.

the wire color abbreviations are in german (i.e. RT = rot = red) FYI.

Ok. So I've had s good look through many websites explaining wiring diograms and think I've managed to figure most of this out. The 2nd diogram out of the 2 you sent looks much easier to read.it looks to me as tho there will only be 2 wires that actually need hardwiring to the car and that's a power suply and a wire to the main switch in footwell. The rest just go from module to the actual power lift parts. My concern is I can't seem to see how all this links into the ccc. there should be an option in the ccc for tailgate lift angle. I can't figure out which wires are for that.
Can you see anything in the diogram that looks as if it's for this.

Thank you
