    Unhappy Rear 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

    Question Rear 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.
