    I got my rear window working , except for the key in the gate switch /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    What is the possible problem(s) with it?
    Do I have to remove the whole regulator to get at it?
    Anyone deal with this problem?
    Thanks

    The inside of the switch may be corroded. There was a post a few yrs ago that showed how to disassemble and clean the key assembly, I'll see if I can dig it up ... hopefully someone bookmarked it.

    From within the tailgate, remove the 2 nuts that hold on the key housing(for lack of a better description). Remove the wiring from the back of the key switch, and remove the whole mechanism. The remove the key switch from the housing by a c-clip if i remember correctly, clean those connection pins. Also take the pin contraption out of the switch and clean the connections on the inside of the switch then put it all back together /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The post I was looking for has a broken link. Hopefully that description will help.
