09 Mazda3 manual key trunk to keyless trunk upgrade
My neighbor just got a 09 Mazda 3 & was very excited that the keyless entry had a trunk release button because she’s getting old but she couldn’t get it to work.
Well, long story short, a tree limb fell & busted her back window & dented the trunk. (Really sucks because it wasn’t 8 days old) She had the body man to check out why the button wasn’t working & he told her the keyless entry trunk button doesn’t work because the electric trunk popper was never installed on the car. (I haven’t actually looked at it yet because it’s still in the shop)
Anyway, my question is: What parts would it take & where would I find them (other than the dealer IF possible) to change the manual trunk to a factory style keyless trunk. I'd need a parts list, preferably with part numbers, but just accurate part names would go a long way.
If I can #1 get the info & #2 do it at a reasonable price she can afford, then I'll do a How To video for anybody interested in upgrading a Mazda3 to a keyless trunk because I often do How To videos.
