Question rear window latch

so i can't seem to get my rear window to open with the switch can't tell if the switch went bad or what tried putting a test light to the switch and got nothing and also dont have the key to open it manually so i figured i'd try and replace it so that i could atleast open it with a key so my question is how hard is it to do? and where do i start?

Re: rear window latch

Once you get the back cover off it's easy. A little clip holds the latch/lock on. Does your horn work?

Re: rear window latch

Just make sure the fuse is good, it's the same one for the horn I believe. I think you can just jump the leads on the switch and see if that does it.

Re: rear window latch

Definitely check the fuse first.
Can you hear the switch trying to open it or the latch makes no noise at all? If it does have someone pull/push the window grip while you rapidly hit the button. If you get it open, lithium grease the latch.

If not, the switches are easy to replace.

does that make a difference? What vehicle are we talking about here? I always thought the rear window release was a simple 2 wire circuit.

Re: rear window latch

If you got nothing with the test light and you say the fuse is fine, it could be the wire itself is bad. Did you test the fuse for continuity? they could go bad and not blow.

If all else fails..... run a new wire
