Rear Deck overide switches
Rather than hijack some existing threads relating to Spider hood issues I have a question that has been puzzling me.
Why is it that when the rear deck fails to open or close on the switch as part of the normal raise / lowering process will it work when using the overide switch?
If the overide switch only operates the deck release / lock motor exactly the same as the normal process then why doesn't the motor operate in the normal process?
I have had the eternal issue with my rear cover not releasing and tapping the motor sometimes works, I read about the improved gear for the motor so ordered one (I live in Germany and use the car when back in the UK so couldn't examine the gear beforehand) in the hope I could stop beating the c**p out of the deck release motor.
On fitting the new gear the old one that came out had all it's teeth and looked good (albeit a little too pink for my liking) so I doubt this has fixed my problem.
So should I start worrying about things like roof ecu's etc?
If anyone can shed some light on this I would be most grateful
