Can anybody advise as to what position they might be in the tailgate.Any suggestions would be very greatfully received. Melvynjb
Hi i have 2002 espace and i have scratch my head about this as well but it does come off because ive heard that it has been done put a search under (espace rear door or lock) and see what comes up.On my espace there is a panal the width of the door and about 4inches high halfway down the back door i think this is a service hatch this may help you.
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
