Another one of those common failures, motor turn but hatch remains closed, there is some adjustment in the system but even at the max settings the hatch remained firmly shut.
|Motor adjusts by releasing and moving the two 10mm bolts.
Lock adjust by loosening and moving the 6mm Allen bolts
|Here you can see the pivot that releases the hatch|
|Evidently you can get fatigue failure here if you release mechanism is too tight. I had no such problems.|
|Picture shows what the motor does to the latch mechanism.|
|This is the latch after a thorough cleaning, full of gunk|
|To make up for the lack of adjustment make a small shim for a suitable material, motor oil containers as suggested by someone else work remarkably well.|
|Place shim at rear of lock, adjust motor to its least aggressive setting and move until hatch releases, I still needed the motor at virtually it's maximum setting so my system must be pretty worn.|
|While you are playing with the hatch it is useful to have a helper to actuate the release button :-)|
