My thanks to the Team at Teslamarket.ca for providing me (at a discount) this Model 3 Power Trunk Kit. Here is the link for the kit: https://www.teslamarket.ca/product/b67cc217-2a70-4569-a24c-c2de4779fd0c

This kit adds a full power option to opening and closing the Model 3 trunk. There are 5 ways to open/close:

* Screen
* Trunk button
* Key fob
* App
* Kick sensor ** optional extra cost – if installed
* Soft closing

It also features an anti-pinch safety system and an adjustable height setting.

This kit is similar to many others on the market today. It features a DIY design and non-destructive installation, as all connectors are plug-in type and fitting to OEM connectors.

I did not make an installation video as I was paying someone to do it for me. However for the DIY-er, you can watch many videos online for installations that show similar kits including this one from Hannshow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFjyjZiXAUA

I wanted to have a professional install this and I would highly recommend you do as well.

I had this kit professionally installed by an ex-Telsa mechanic. His name is Cyril Wheeler and he is the owner of Wheeler Automotive, a shop specializing in servicing Teslas. This install took about 3 hours with me helping. As I mentioned in the video, due to the fact that I have a Stealth Hitch installed underneath the bumper, we needed to remove the bumper to run some wires. If you do not have a Hitch, then the installation time will be shorter.
