Thanks! In the meantime I found some manual issued by Mazda to give directions how to fix the problem. They recommend to use some three-component glue mixture. I can share with this manual if anyone of M5' owners wants to look at details. cheers

The tailgate is made of fiber glass/composite material. So I would imagine that the repair was somewhere around the guidelines of repairing fiber glass surfaces which the "mesh" type of material that 5truth mentions sounds like the ticket.
I had a similar issue with my first Mazda5 (I dont own anymore) but it happened within warranty period and they wanted to repair it as well but i made a big stink about it and got the regional manger for Mazda involved and eneded up getting the entire tailgate replaced.
