couldn't post in a related thread so here goes...
dealing with the failed rear hatch lock/motor. stupid prob is it failed in the open position so i had to tie my rear hatch down. i'm awaiting part quotes on the lock assembly and motor. from the diagrams, looks like i may be able to do myself. but i'm gonna check fuses first but don't think that's it.
fwiw - i had both passenger side door locks fail on me in the past. they could only be locked and opened manually from the inside. i recall paying upwards like 700 bux to fix both freakin doors.
