Rear hatch does not disengage interior light

Recommended Posts

It's easy to adjust if you're handy . When you open the glass you will notice the square shaped latch on the left and a pin on the right. The pin on the right controls the rear wiper. The left square shaped latch is what you want to adjust.

1. Pull off the plastic cover that surrounds the area. You will notice a nut that holds the square shaped latch tight.

2. Loosen that and try rotating the square latch 1/2 turn to the left or 180 degrees and re-tighten the nut.

3. Re-close the glass and see if it grabs and turns off the light. I just had this problem and my initial thought was to tighten the latch bolt (to the right) to draw the glass closer but the light actually needs the bolt longer (to the left) which helps it push that catch mechanism completely and turn the light off.

4. You may need to adjust it a few times or rotate it a complete 360 degrees until you get it right.
