How hard is it to swap trunk lids? is the wiring & lock cylinder a PITA to convert? Kinda interested bro
Fairly easy, you remove the shocks, undo 4 nuts and off it goes. Wiring is easily accessible once you remove the liner inside. Another 4 nuts hold the rail with license plate lights and lock. Took me about 30 minutes to swap them...

Thanks Steve, this is for a B5 that you have, B5.5 is a bit different with a longer rail that houses, license plate lights, lock cylinder and opening mechanism so I just swapped the whole thing on the euro lid but actual lock cylinder can be removed and swapped separately as well...
