finbmw is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi,

The tailgate of my E39 -98 is not staying up anymore, is there a known cause (and solution) for this ?
E.g. cylinder starting to leak or other ?

I think the dampers are gas filled and over time they can leak, causing your problem. Perhaps try replacing these.
