Purchased a gl450 under 50,000miles in April under the orginial warranty. Had a leak within the same month not oil but what appeared to be transmission fuild-took it to a local mercedes dealer was told its nothing as they check everything with no leakage noted. 4 months later no longer under warranty just alittle over 50,000 miles the clut in the transmission went out priced at over $7000. I argued w/ the dealer with the inital offer to cover only half of the price. Argued more as they covered 90% of the cost of a new transmission which costed me approx $600 w/ a warranty on the new transmissioin for another 24,000 miles or 2 years. Do you think I still need an extended warranty on the car?

Check the fuse's first. If you changed the battery there is a chance you shorted it to ground and may have blown some fuses. Do this first.

How do I get my rear hatch door open,when you can't open it from the outside?


You can get it open in two ways: By using your key fob and remotely opening latch or by pulling inside panel on rear hatch and manually pulling lever to get latch to release. Most times when you cant get rear hatch to open normally is because cable from outside release handle to latch broke. Have cable and release mechanism inspected and replace worn or broken parts as needed.

The Rear hatch door handle does not unlock


had this problem myself.... you gotta go in through the back and take the plastic/vinal cover off the rear door and look for the lock from the inside..... unlock it .... open the door and then you can repair and lube the mechanism while standing outside like a human being. its not very hard to do.. just take your time and don't force anything.

Emergency trunk release


Usually, the "T" handle is an emergency release, in case someone becomes locked in the trunk, believe it or not.

It's attached to a cable that activates the latch mechanism.

My rear hatch will not open on my 1998 jeep grand cherokee


Your Grand Cherokee has a small pop off panel on the inside of the rear hatch trim...after carefully removing this panel reach inside the opening and you will find a release cable...pull on this cable and the hatch latch should release...then try lubricating the latch at all contact points, and the mechanism itself...if the latch does not release the next try, then you will need to replace this latch...this is a dealer or salvage yard part...your least costly replacement will be through the salvage yard market...some salvage yards are now on-line, and will ship the part to you. Hope this helps.

2005 GMC BACK HATCH WON'T OPEN


It sounds like the lock actuator has failed or has a poor connection which won't allow the latch to release. What you will need to do is remove the inside rear hatch panel to access the lock actuator. Once you get to the latch use a flat screwdriver to release the latch being careful not to damage the glass.

Rear hatch window will not release


This is a common problem on the blazer. If you can hear the rod actuator working, then the actuator rod to latch rod connector has broken. It's plastic, and a poor GM design.
To get the rear hatch open you will need to manualy release it. It can be done by working as much of the plastic tailgate trim you can get loose, from around the top center of the gate, where the latch is. remove the 2 screws that hold the handle on and remove handle. Then pry as much as you need to access the c type latch, and release it by moving it... it's spring loaded and will only move one way. Haveing someone help you lift the hatch while you unlatch it from inside the vehicle helps. After you get the hatch up and the tailgate folded down, make sure the latch is locked in the open position.
The actuator can be repaired, i've done it several times. GM will try and sell you a new one, which is rather costly compared to the $8.00 piece of plastic you need.
Good luck and i hope this helps.
