So the mechanism for my hatch has been fucked for the past two years and I'm not really sure how to fix it? Neither the key or the Auto locks work for it and it's starting to drive me crazy since I can't open it.

Anyone have any ideas how I can get this fucker working? The back panel is already off so I'm not sure if that will make things easier or not.

[cheers]

Mine is stuck too.

I had to remove the panel from the inside, then manually move the rods.

I still need to take out the lock and repair it.

Ian guessing ours is the same. It because the rear window will leak into the hatch if the molding is damaged.

just kick it and all the rust will fall out then you can just reach though the holes and unlock it.

They are really not much different from a city bus, just mount a set of rotary bus doors in place of the rear hatch. They should be a direct bolt in :D [cheers]

He's probably stuck in the window.

This trick always works for me - push IN on the license plate when you pull the latch. Sometimes it's shut tight, and the old lock parts bind up and won't operate.

I have tried that and still no go, it seems the mechanism in the door is actually broken, prob from piece of shit plastic clip I'm thinking
