When actuated, the lift motor can be heard running for a brief time, but does not lift the door. Suggestions? Could it be not engaging? There is a click, then the motor can be heard, but nothing else happens. The door CAN be opened manually.

Re: rear power door not working
Check the gate suports.. its very common for them to rust at the ends and cause them to bind that will not allow the gate to lift on its own. a click or pop may be heard when the gate is opened or closed.. also if the supports are working right the gate actually moves away from the body when the latch is released. if its stays against the body then try the supports for the gate

Not an expert but you seem to have a problem with the actuator units on the rear doors I hear this is a common problem with VW Polo some times it is the actuator not lifting the lock far enough or it is a total failure of the rear actuators this can be fixed if it is an adjustment on the lifter but it involves stripping the door to adjust the lifters or to replace the units first you need to find out if they are doing anything and if you are getting power to the actuators most times it is a job you can do yourself or it is a trip to an auto electrician.
could be a wiring short, but if you hear the lock motor moving i believe the lock actuator has broken free. the rivets break free at times and i've used screws and washers the reattach the actuator in place without having to pull apart the door. try to see if you hear 1 doorlock at a time. if when you press the button, the motor sounds and theres movement thats your problem. if you press and theres no motor then you either have no power to the motor or its bad. current tester to the switch will tell you either way.
Hello! One of the Blend Door Actuators is defective...There are three different Actuators...See picture #1...I would suggest that The Mode Door Actuator is defective...It is DORMAN Part # 604115...Cost = around $50..It is on the lower left side of the pictured HVAC unit....The part is shown in picture #2....After replacing The actuator...Pull the heater fuse...Start the engine...Run for 45 seconds...Turn off key...Replace fuse...This allows the computer to learn the new part...Guru...saailer
They are not related ...
The lift gate locking mechanism can be accessed by removing the interir trim pannel on the gate ... and locating the locking actuator and replacing it...
The same can be done for the power window motor ... remove the interior trim panel and replace the power window motor...
hello there: you may have to disassemble the door panel and check to see if the cable going to the actuator has come off if the cable is there and mounting looks OK you may need to replace the actuator its a simple procedure to do and it's just as expensive to replace the motor and actuator together at the same time the reason for this is to resolve future problems.... hope this helps thanks
THE DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR IS BAD THIS WHAT CONTROLS THE LOCK ELECTRONICALLY. WHAT IT IS THAT GET HOT AND THE CONTROL GETS HOT SO MANY TIMES BURNS UP CONTRFOL CONTACT. THE ONLY FIX IS TO REPLACE THE ACTUATOR.
