    UnhappyRear window/hatch release sticking

    The rear window won't release completely and opening it is difficult when the inside button is pressed, but it works fine with the key. Any suggestions?

    Maybe I can take a quick digital picture of my mechanism, if it would help, and someone can let me know what I need to adjust to help it release better. It clicks and releases and the window is slightly ajar, but it is sticking on something unless I use the key.

    Thanks

    QuestionRear window/hatch fixed! BUT illumination problem?

    Yes, good advice! The hatch works perfectly now without any other modification to the mechanism. Just some good grease lubrication!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    When you have your headlights on and your dash lights are illuminated, is there a dash light illuminationing the word HATCH for the hatch release or not? :disappoin Mine is completely dark at night. Thanks.
