Rear Hatch Lock

BCXterra

Bought an X
Having a bit of issue with my rear hatch lock.

Key fob will unlock all other doors, but only partially releases rear hatch. I pull the handle and it opens about 1/4”, if at all.
If I shut it again and unlock with the key it works fine.
Has anyone else had this happen. Any ideas before I tear into it and try to figure out?

It sounds like a connection issue to the actuator, almost as if it’s not receiving the necessary power to fully release the latch.

Yeah, mine does that too...it has for years. It just doesn't bother me enough to do something about it. Please let me know what you find out...I'm curious if it's an easy fix or not. I've always lean towards the side of it possibly being gummed up.

Mine did that as well and then started failing at a time I needed it to open on the trail. I'd clean and spray it when I had the time and it's working if I was you....

had same issue.. Can open with Fob. But key inserted, will not rotate. stuck. Figured gummed up with Dust & goo..
I systematically, would put key in jiggle it.. Repeat that few times during a month.. works again.. just need lube.

Thar is a trick(SEE NOTE) to drill a 1" hole 7" over 4" up.. and it will allow one to poke finger for Rear exit. When you sleep in the back.

****NOTE: Idea was invent by a fellow ( surf & Snow) over in the Other failed Xterra site.. Measurements are just a guess.
