Rear window latch fail
I'm still going through new commander orientation, and discovering all the thing being hidden by the previous owner...
Yesterday I used the remote to pop open the back window hatch. It worked but now won't latch closed?
It is reaching the rear limit, not getting stuck on the clasp, and cycling the latch mechanism, but will not engage and grab onto the window loop.
I've tried holding it closed and actuating the release as well as locking and unlocking the doors while holding the window closed to no avail.
I searched around a good bit last nite but don't see anything on the web except failure to open problems...
Anyone with experience, or know of a thread that deals with this? As far as I can tell the release solenoid /actuator works great, and I'd hate to buy a new latch asst when it must be something simple like a return spring or detent pin, or notch.
I usually grab a chiltons repair manual, but haven't gotten around to it yet, and not likely that it would go in depth enough to troubleshoot this anyway.
