Default Additional power liftage switch

I always wanted another switch for closing the liftgate placed on it. So I found way how to do it. Was so simple. Costs $4 cable, $4 switch (ebay).

@Hoopy, thanks for that further information, very useful. Unfortunately the URL you posted includes the Escape characters. This is how the URL should be formatted: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...m/263850721270

Edit: And that supplier doesn't post to the U.K. But this one does and it costs 2.81: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1Pc-Unive...SFzg:rk:1:pf:0

Oops, sorry for that. Hope, at least the switch picture in my video will be helpful to find it on ebay. I just browsed words like trunk, universale, liftgate, switch, tailgate. And sorry, I did not realized the seller does not post to the UK.
Are the notes in video clear enough to get the general idea? English is not my mother language.

The idea to make a video from fitting the switch came later so I had to work with photos I had made while doing on it.

Your notes in the video are excellent, very detailed and easy to follow. I think that your idea will be adopted by a lot of Voyager owners so well done, really excellent.
