Re: Battery under passenger seat

From our friend, the OM:

"In the event of a power malfunction to the liftgate, an
emergency liftgate latch release can be used to open
the liftgate. The emergency liftgate latch release can be
accessed through a snap-in cover located on the liftgate
trim panel."

I haven't tried this yet, so I'm not sure exactly where this is located. Anyone out there feel like checking this out? (I'm still in my jammies, and on my second cup 'o java.)

I'll save everyone pictures of you in your jammies

I'm guessing they are talking about this piece on the inside. Once you pop it off (which is pretty tough and be careful as I broke one of the snaps), there's little visibility, but I think I found the lever that you can push down toward the bottom of the liftgate. However on mine, it wasn't moving any parts when pushed. Did not want to go Hulk Hogan on it, so I stopped for now.

The only bad thing is that I closed the liftgate and tried to open using the lever and well, a trip over the seats let me back out. Maybe more attempts at this after more java.

Re: Battery under passenger seat

Thanks for looking into this, I am very interested in knowing if indeed it is possible to open the lift gate when there is no power.

It ain't a pretty sight!

Sorry you broke the snap. Think of it as taking one for the team! Let us know how it all turns out. Do you think you'll have to replace the cover panel since the snap broke?

No worries on one of the probably 10 snaps. Everything went back in flush so I'm not even going to worry about it.

There's nothing in my driver's side cavity, no QL here.
