Question Automatic trunk closer retrofit on w205

Hello guys, after purchasing my w205 last year I kept obsessing over the fact that the car was missing a automatic trunk closer feature,and so after lurking all over the internet (keep in mind that I am a handyman that does everything) I saw that alot of people were selling the parts necessary for this retrofit.
Now, after spending quite alot of time and money to actually get all the parts from different persons on ebay ,mind you that alot of money were lost on behalf of
people not wanting to sell me specific parts (no one had all the parts).
So to the issue at hand, I am not able to locate a wiring loom as I initially thought would be available, so this makes this install very not so plug n' play...ish.
No worries, I sought ought to find a mercedes service manual... so the install could be once again finished by myself but the problem is after finding the said manual
again I found myself in despair as it was a bit difficult to understand, mainly the wiring diagrams and also what connects to what and where ...

After explaining my whole situation I ask the forum if anyone has attempted to retrofit an automatic trunk closer feature?If not I will continue to advance on my own, will be posting photos soon as I proceed
