One is for the hatch to open... The other is for the hatch window to open. I'm not sure which is which without going back in and looking.

The one on the right (pink clip is on the right) is for the hatch. On the left is for the hatch glass.

Just did this repair today. Used a 5/64" drill bit for the hole for the straw. Didn't bother taping the hole, as there isn't any appreciable dirt in the area and there are other openings in that box, as evidenced when I overfilled it with spray.

Ok guy I too was having the same problem, no matter what I did the problem continues. It sucks when your locked out of the truck especially when it is full of grocery as one said. Ok later on the doorwould not stay closed. i found the bolts that holds the striker (section that lift gate locks into was loosed, got that all tightened up after come major hassle and now the doors rumbles like it is not closed properly. More problems now.

Is the door fully latched? Put your hand under the bottom of the hatch and give a wiggle. It shouldn't rattle. If it does, it's not fully latched. For me, that meant the latch needed to be adjusted at the door sill, the metal loop that the hatch grabs on to. When I had it too far toward the front of the truck, the hatch couldn't get to the second latch position unless I really slammed the hatch.

Trial and error on adjusting that loop.

Hi,

Bringing this back to the top. We got my wife a 2010 Titanium last year without a power lift gate and I had to do the DIY fix. I've had to do this fix 3-4 times now and am willing to just bite the bullet and get a new actuator. Does anyone have a source to get a replacement actuator at or below dealer cost? TIA.

Rick

Hello all. I am having a problem related to this and could use your help:

I cannot currently open the back hatch or the window of our Armada. Even if I crawl in the back and put that little switch down, it still won't unlatch. I can hear the mechanism "work" when I click the remote, but it will not disengage. I've already tried spraying lubricant back there.

Anybody have a though on how to get the lock to disengage?

Thanks

What year is your car?
We're there any signs of a failure beforehand?

If you are handy with tools and such, grab the service manual off the interwebs and study the diagram on that back door mechanism.

It is a 2007 Nissan Armada. I can't say there was signs of failure beforehand. I just shut the hatch and now I can't get it open even while crawling in the back and releasing that latch. I don't think I can access the back innards of the mechanism because the door is shut.

[2011 Armada] Rear Hatch Issues

So, my wife's 2011 Armada has an issue that happens occasionally - the rear hatch refuses to open. It happened last when she was out the other day and carrying some stuff. The glass upper window opened, but the whole door refused to open. She gets home and tells me about this (not the first tie it has happened), and we go check on it, and it opens fine. Anyone with ideas?

Just a pure guess; hoping it's something simple and you've probably already checked this.

Can you hear the latch unlatching? Could the door not be closing properly (all the way), placing too much pressure on the latch so it's not releasing?
