Yea it does come off. I forget exactly how,kinda old & probably rotted enough to fall off,but if you insist.You raise the lid all the way & pull some pins out for the hinges & remove the gas struts that hold it up. There may be an electrical wire to disconnect too. Try the dealer for the exact instructions. Nissan will be around for many years unlike the American car makers.

How is the rear wiper cowling removed on a 2004 ford explorer?

This is a guide on how I removed my rear hatch panel so everyone else doesn't have to search through countless threads with vague instructions on how to do it.

Step 1: Remove the plastic pins around the top pf the hatch. These should be the same color as your interior. To remove them you can either buy the actual tool to do it at any local car parts store, or just take a set of screwdrivers and pry.

Step 2: Remove 2 screws holding the pull strap in. It's that little thing that hangs off the panel when you open the hatch up. The 2 screws are directly under the strap's base.

Step 3: Pop out the plastic piece from the lock indicator. It just pops out with a little prying from your screwdriver.

Step 4: Remove a screw next to the lock indicator. It should be underneath where the plastic piece we just pried out was.

Step 5: Yank the panel off. To do this, pull it towards the front of the truck, and it shoulc just pop out. You may get all the front clips and need to force the rear clips forward by hand.

To replace it, just do the steps in reverse.

    Rear windshield wiper connection

    You need to open the rear glass from the rear hatch. Look inside where the glass latches to the rear hatch. There is a Phillips head screw that connects the rear inner plastic panel to the rear hatch, remove this screw. Now, in the strap that you use to pull the rear hatch down, there is a torques head screw, that holds this strap to the rear hatch, you need to remove this screw.
    Start at one of the outer corners of the inner plastic panel and pull the panel away from the hatch. You will see the upper wiper motor in the right hand corner of the hatch. ther is one connector that is easy to see, you have to pull up on a plastic clip to remove this connector. Look for the rubber hose for the windshield washer fluid, it may be cracked or fallen off the plastic nozzle to the outside of the rear door.

    Please the hose back on or replace the hose if it's cracked or damaged by the wiper motor. To install just follow the procedure in revers.
    Good luck and hope i made some sense. Keep me posted, be glad to help out.

    Battery died now power sliding doors and rear hatch not operating

    1) Unlock all doors from driver's door while it is open. The driver's door is the only door to remain open during this process! 2) Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. All the doors will lock and unlock if program is successful. 3) Turn key OFF and remove key from ignition. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the remote. (Press sliding door or rear hatch and it will open!) 4) If door locks do not respond, wait several seconds and press button again. If doors still fail to respond, try repeating steps (1-3).
