Hi Everyone,

I used old ETG6 gearbox grand picasso and new EAT6 gearbox Citroen C4 Grand Picasso. My first picasso has electric tailgate and when I bought newer picasso it does not have electric tailgate. I bought used parts (struts, tailgate computer, lock mechanism) to my new picasso. I installed successfuly also I installed two cars after my first installation. I added foot trigger opsion to open tailgate without touching open button. Just put your foot to under bumber like new MK2 model!
If you have any question I can help to you or If your car has electric tailgate I can convert tailgate open operation from manual to foot trigger

What's involved in adding foot operation to a pre-facelift 2016 model?

(Actually, for me the bigger win would be powered-close from the remote instead of the button on the tailgate itself)

I was hoping you would have posted more details of parts and what is needed to be done

It is extremely difficult to add equipment on these cars, as the standard equipment is part of the car's electrical configuration. If you try to add parts, the connections may be there, but if the car doesn't recognise it, it can be difficult or impossible to make it work. Unfortunately, in most cases, if you want it you have to buy a car with it already fitted.

My tailgate is electric opening and closing so I would only need the sensor I was hoping it was the Official Citroen part

I had the kit for a few months now it but came without instructions, the seller sent me instructions via the website but they are not in English, do you have the fitting instructions in English?
