    The V6 strut is indeed thinner. It does contact marginally. I also apply a product on my rubber seals that reduce the friction and also keeps them hydrated:

    I'm going to put some kind of electrical tape or suberized tape around the strut castle nut. The nuts edges are to sharp and are going to cut the rubber water seal attached to the back glass over time.

    would it do this if you are linked to the CanBUS? I have a V4 and looking at getting this installed in the coming month

    pretty sure mine is connected via Canbus. I had it installed by RPM Tesla, and at that time the "v5" was insatlled, (which is the same as v4 but with different wiring) and it still shows the rotating opened and closed when the trunk is open. Its not a huge deal since it gives you enough time to close it before switching

    Just reading about the V6 trunk (boot in the UK!). I have installed and can add a video from Hannshow to adjust close force. However the forum blocks MP4 video? If you PM me I can send via WhatsApp. I've just adjusted it and it works fine. Otherwise the V6 works fine, rams don't push too hard on the seals and the open position and speed set are as the previous video shared.

    After reading many posts, and problems - does anyone know of a professional installer in or around Fort Lauderdale? Thanks
