Recommended Posts

hello to every one and a happy chrismass and a great new year to all

i after a bit of advise before taking my freelander to the garage because the rear door will not open but the window works fine from the switch in side but the door seems to be powerless but I have checked all fuse's and they look great, so any help would be great

There may be a problem with the CCU or wiring between it and the rear door or a problem with the motor in the rear door

If you are not upto speed on wiring diagrams and theory there are no real tips to diagnose the problem below the level at which i have advised . One piece of advice Dont take to main dealer try and find auto lecky or better stil a local independent landy workshop.

May be stating the obvious but what about the switch/wiring inside the back door handle? Tricky to get at when the door won't open but I believe it's doable. From memory there's not a lot to it - wires to the switch and wires to the opening mechanism, maybe also a switch that detects when the window's dropped to allow opening.

Disconnect battery for 30 seconds then reconnect and door will open straightaway. Guaranteed to work as my 1st land always did it

I read all the advice about rear door sticking causes. then inside the passenger area I decided to ensure child lock switch was off by bending a blade and pushing this up. I then wound window down and using the outside handle to open the door I gave a good kick. The door opened! then saw that the lock mechanism was dry. I used some bike oil and fresh grease and now it opens freely again!
