This answer was rated:

hi i have a 2005 e91 and both srings on the tailgate have broken or at least the 2 pins have come out. one happened a while ago and someone managed to break the spring so the tailgate would open fully, now the other has gone. Ive got 2 replacement hinges but i can't find anything online about how to remove the tailgate in order to replace the hinges.
Can you help?

I can email you VERY DETAILED instructions (the same ones that are used in BMW main dealer workshops - the most detailed that are available) replace these hinges. They will arrive as PDFs to your email in 2-3 minutes.
there is an additional charge for email but I will set it to a very fair amount not far from the lowest minimum allowable by the site.
I have submitted the offer

Presumably these contain all instructions regarding wiring harnesses and that
it contains absolutely everything required to replace the hinges...
