1997 SW1
Default Rear hatch electric lock motor

I was messing around with the tailgate of my SW1 to figure out why it wouldn't unlock with the remote or interior handle. Turns out the gear inside the actuator is stripped - not a surprise after seeing how small it is.

Anyone know if the actuator is the same as the lock motor for the doors? I haven't been able to track down a separate listing for the rear hatch on any of the online parts catalogs, just the right and left door lock actuators. It's not a big deal if it's not working, but if it's not too expensive I'd like to replace it.

2001 SC2
Default Re: Rear hatch electric lock motor

Is it the same latch as the trunks on the SC's?

My SC1 had the same type of problem and I fixed it by switching the latch from my SC2 to it, and I gave it some WD-40 for good measure.

You might be able to get it from a junkyard.

Not sure if it's the same latch as on the SCs - this is my first Saturn so I'm not familiar with how the parts interchange between models. Maybe if I get ambitious I'll pull one of the door panels and see if it's the same...but that'll have to wait until the temps drop to under 100*.

I thought the in-car release on the sedans/coupes was mechanical.

Not sure about the coupes and sedans, but the in-car "handle" near the seat in the wagon is a switch....

Yeah, I know; that's why I was asking specifically about the SCs/SLs. Makes sense it's a switch; if it were a cable, it'd have to go thru the tailgate.

2001 SC2
Default Re: Rear hatch electric lock motor

In my SC's the in car trunk release lever works like a switch, the hood release has a cable.
If the latch is setup the same way in the wagons as it is in the SC/SL then it's really simple to remove, with just 2 10mm(I think) bolts holding it on and 2 rods that connect it to the key lock cylander.
