Q: Rear window stuck.

asked by on

My rear window is stuck and the latch is not working.

A: It is possible that the latch has failed or...

It is possible that the latch has failed or there may be a wiring issue in the rear lift gate. Sometimes a wire can break from being flexed over and over by the action of opening the tailgate. I would ask for help from a certified mechanic to inspect if there are any wiring issues or if your problem is simply a bad latch.
