Direct swap I believe, though no one has got the powered tailgate working.

Just seen that, seems a genuine seller looking at their feedback.
Seems expensive thoughI was offered one at half the price a couple of months ago.

Thnaks for the reply , do things like these have part number or not as I could ask him for the LR part no as I'm worried it might be a OEM part made as a replica and not an actual LR part thanks

Hinges are different, the MY12 tailgate doesn't fit earlier hinges.

BTW if it is in Lithuania, it's genuine. Hundreds of crashed cars are hauled to Lithuania every day, why would somebody get to the lengths of manufacturing and selling "fake" tailgate, when one can remove it from a non-repairable parts donor bought in France, UK or Italy for 1500 Euros?
That said, it's way too expensive, here's a complete MY2012 tailgate for 160 quid + shipping http://allegro.pl/klapa-tylna-bagaznika-ra...49555.html Regards etc.,

You need to use the 2012 hinges but it is a straight swap.

Thanks for the reply but I need a santorini black one , I'm struggling to find any really on the internet as thanks I will buy the hinges then there only 30 also what did the guy mean on the forum saying the 2012 tailgate automatically opens when pressed on the button ? Does it completely raise ?

I've fitted the 2012 tailgate to my 2011 Range Rover sport. there is a lot of wiring mods to sort out as your wire harness for the back is wired to feed 2 X tail gates i.e. top and bottom. The 2012 is just one closure. It took me a day to fit it after it was painted and sorted the wiring.

Check my link below to see.

Thanks for the reply I didn't know about the wire harness change and I'm not mechanic so il be taking it to a garage to be fitted , where did you buy your tailgate , also what do you think of your 2012 one compared to the old one is it better to live with ?

Scotland 2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 Autobiography Firenze Red

First, I've never even seen the pre-2012 RRS boot lid in the flesh so I'm comparing with my old RR which I'd guess is similar? Does the top half go up and lower drop down? I was disappointed with my post-2012 style one piece boot lid as I miss the convenience of being able to open the glass section to drop something in the boot quickly, especially in the rain where I now have to wait for the complete boot lid to open.

I guess it's personal, and from reading on here was a bit to do with weight? 13MY Range Rover Sport Autobiography SDV6 - mine
14MY Range Rover Evoque Dynamic SD4 Black Pack - wife's

Got mine from a breakers yard from a 2012 Autobiography. Personally and this is only my opinion I like the look of the newer boot its a lot lighter as its aluminium and it just looks better and the silver strip is all in line with the body curve. I did not like the round plastic button either, again this is my personal taste.

Thumbs Up

2012 tailgate

Looks like a lot of people doing the tailgate mod or wanting to undertake the mod. It would be very good if ABSport would be kind enough to post the wiring mods and maybe add it (sticky) in the mods bit. No ADY, I am not trying to stick anything to you Thumbs Up In Spain - Santorini Black 2011 HSE
