SOURCE: Jeep Liberty 2005 Cannot shut tailgate window......

Hi all,

I had the same problem onmy dad's Jeep KJ (Cherokee/Liberty) so i went ahead and unbolted the tailgate handle;

First you need to take off the plastic inner tailgate cover (doh), then carefully pry away the the black liner and you'll see 2x 10mm hex nuts, unscrew both. Then on the latch outer side of the tailgate remove the upper 2 torx screws, then loosen one of the clamps of the connecting rod between latch and handle.
While pulling out on the handle (needed to clear the mechanism from the sheetmetal) you'll be able to carefully remove the complete doorhandle assembly.
There's still one wireloom attached to the handle, this is the culprit, It's the little actuator switch that's need liberal amounts of lubricant such as WD40 or similar.
I actually removed the switch and pushed it several times to full stroke after i lubricated it, then reconnected it and presto! The rear window unlocked every single time by means of the doorhandle instead of using the wireless remote...

Easy fix, done in half an hour. Saved you $ 300 on parts and labour

Good luck!

SOURCE: rear window will not close

The latch could be bad. Try latching it with a screwdriver to see if the latch will close at all. If it does it might just need to be adjusted out further.

Hello and welcome the problem is very simple to resolve first make sure you have battery power turn off vehicle open rear gate unlock doors go to rear gate and look at lock unlock again and push the Grey plastic lock trigger mechanism forward towards front glass close gate unlock again make sure lock is still in the position you just set it to and close glass it will the lock. Normally what happens in this situation was power was removed from your jeep and the rear gate was opened with no power running to electric lock so it stays in a set position you cannot lock the glass because there was no power in the electric lock I will lock once you reset it Hope this help.

2010 Nissan sentra trunk won't close - like the latch isn't hitting hook.


It is common if you have loaded anything heavy into or out of the trunk, it is easy to catch on the latch and it bends quite easily. Try covering the catch or latch with a grease like white lithium or vaseline and shutting the trunk lid down lightly and see if you can see the imprint of where it is striking, then bend accordingly. Or you can climb into the trunk with a flashlight and shut it down and see if you can see which way it needs to be bent to line back up.

My hood latch on my 95 f-150 pickup truck is not working


If you can get it up. lube the catch mechanism, above and below. Lube the hood hinges at the rear of hood, work it up and down a few times before you try closing.
I hope you haven't bent anything at the rear hinge points, or the front catch?

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

1993 Park Avenue-trunk will latch but not close tight. Several years ago had motor disconnected so you just slam truck and not worry. Now the metal latch-catch is up high and trunk will not shut tight. ...


Find another 91-95 Park Avenue at your local salvage yard...or call on line or contact to reach on-line salvage yards...you can purchase just the latch...(as you know it is designed to be an automatic pull-down...This is an easy switch out...the latch will be $20-45. I have one at home:) Hope this helps.

Boot wont close at all


The latch may be stuck in the "open postion" you might try spraying some WD-40 on the latch. Try working the handle a couple times.

New Beetle boot does not shut properly 2000 model indicator light stays on boot appears to be locke3d on on first notch.


Hope this helps, it worked on my 2003 beetle convertible. First, I tried adjusting the latch mechanism and the catch post to put them closer together when the trunk is closed. You will need to remove all of the trunk trim to get to the screws on these two pieces. You also need a special bit called a "triple square" bit in two sizes to loosen them. The trim removal took forever. This works for many folk, but unfortunately, this did now work for me. The second trick did work. I found the cure on my car when I rotated the latch hook by hand. When the latch hooks around the catch you can see that there is a piece of rubber in the top of latch hook that is supposed to cushion the thud of the latch shutting on the catch post. On my car, the rubber extended so far into the latch and was so hard that the catch post could not go far enough in to allow the hook to snap over. Use the remote to open the latch, pull off the soft plastic cover over the latch and you will see the rubber spacer and how it attaches. Pull off the spacer, sand it down a considerable amount with sand paper wrapped around a small dowl, and reinstall. I could now see that there was room for the catch post to fit into the latch far enough that the hook would spring around and lock it down. Works now with no slams. Good luck.

Rear window will not close


use small box wrench and remove the catch attached to the window. insert 2 washers over each of the 2 connecting bolts ..4 washers required min 2 per side. re attach window catch. This should move the catch forward ehough to depress the locking mechanism.... it worked perfect on my 02 Liberty.
