This past weekend my rear hatch did not open. I head the actuator plunging
but it did not release.
I pried the rear cover just enough to move the lever to release the glass
top and then opened the lower panel.
Removed the interior cover to expose the lower body.
( What where they thinking when they designed this not way to fully remove
the interior trim without removing the 2 screws on the side boy what rocket
scientist. I will make 2 small slits on either side so I can snap the cover
back on but have the ability to remove it by prying it off and then not
having the screws hold the sides down.)
Removed the cover and located a broken piece of plastic the connects the
actuator to what would be the glass door release system.
I used a piece of # 12 AWG wire as a temp to open the door but have to hold
the button in to release the lower section.
Called the dealer, have to buy the entire unit $ 75.00 just to replace the
broke .05 cent plastic connector.
Anyone know of a cheaper way out???
I got the handle release for the seats from whittey, what a savings and it
works great, though someone might know of some sort of replacement for this
Thanks for your help.
