Re: RX4 Rear Door Problems

Hi Oz,

thanks for that. Great to hear that brute force still has its place with modern cars :-)
I spent yesterday with the interior panel half removed and I managed to squeeze in under it without breaking it off (thats a squeeze believe me) before I dropped my little torch down into the back door, I manged to check the connector from the the latch and the one directly on the window lock. No corrosion or visual breaks. I tried to short the cable from the latch in the case the micro switch on the handle just provides an earth but it didnt work. This morning I checked the handle and the seal is somewaht perished and I shot about half a can of WD40 into it. I thumped handle but it still didnt release. Tonight after the WD40 has hopefully worked its way in, its time for the rubber hammer treatment.
