I have the FX4 and I put a system in my truck. The first thing you do when installing a top notch system is pull the entire interior out and put down sound proofing material. The first thing I noticed is that the wiring harness and plug for the rear power slider is in place even though the FX4 can't be ordered with the rear slider (gayest thing in the world & makes no sense)
My 05' Harley F250 was stolen and I had to buy a new truck. It was my second Harley and would have bought a third except it was only availible in Black. I have a Black X5 and will never own another black vehicle. Looks great for the first 45 seconds after cleaning it. But, after that it looks like crap. I had to have the black interior so I had to go with the FX4. Really makes no sense you can't get the Auto Climate and rear power slider in the FX4 trim package.
Ever since I picked this truck up I feel like I have down graded. Doesn't even have a temp gauge and for 50K. What's up with that?
Anyway, I checked into it and you can get the power rear slider to work. The right way to do it is to buy the bezel that goes around the dash with the slot for the factory rear window switch. I'm assuming you hae the FX4 as well. You'll have to buy a can of interior paint to match the black FX4 color which will be know problem. You won't even be able to tell. The plug is there and you'll just need to pop a fuse in and you'll be set. Oh, in case you're wondering, the mount for the motor is there as well. You'll just need to buy the hardware.
I took some pictures and I'll post them for you. I just need to find the folder I put them in. But, the entire projuct will be a piece of cake.
