When we originally tried to install the liftgate without the soft close (for reasons) and just left the stock, I ran into an issue with the hatch a few days later where it wouldn't open. We got new hardware from the manufacturer and ended up installing the soft close hatch, no modifications to it. Haven't had any issues since. I also don't have the rattle. But I understand.For those of you who have done the Autoease kit - did you use their soft close latch or stick with the stock one?
I tried the soft-close but it causes a rattle noise when going over bumps. So I put the stock one back, which eliminates the rattle, but does not close all of the way 100% of the time.
I contacted them and they said I can drill longer holes in their auto-close latch to get the gate tighter, but I want to see if anyone has a different solution
disconnect the connectors after you take a picture. Routing the wires without the connectors is much easier. Reconnect thr connector after grommet route.Just attempted to install this and no bueno. It was smooth sailing until I had to route the wires through the grommet and one of my connectors disconnected. I'm not sure how you guys are doing it but hats off to you.
One of the things I've noticed is that the ground connector is attached to the same end as the fuse as opposed to the manual. I was tapping into the passenger side 30A but couldn't find a chassis ground. Ended up nut mounting it to the one above the footwell.
I couldn't get the grommet to reseal as I've disconnected the rubber from the white plastic mount,. Any tips? I want to do this before it rains here haha.
appreciate the shout out! Once you have done 10 of these, you sort of know certain tricks. Routing the wires with the connectors is doable but not advisable. Remove them and reconnect is the key.More patience than anything. I didn't even do mine, but watching Simon at work....he had to be very patient with fishing the wire. Lol.
Was the video ever posted? Would love to get this on my CR1 soon. I'm by no means a car person at all, but I got a friend who knows a bit. Would love to have a video to show him to see if it's something he thinks he can do. Thanks!We partnered with Mach E VLog to record a video. I think they are still editing the video, but it should be out in a week or two.
