  1. 2013 RRS Rear Window Hatch

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I just recently purchased a 2013 RRS and have seen that previous MY's rear window open's. Is this the case with the MY13's? I do not see any struts on the window or buttons that allow it to open. Did this option go away w/ the powered tailgate? Really wish that it would open for quick access in...
  2. 98 RR rear hatch latch failure

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My 98 RR hatch latch has been acting up. The tailgate closes and latches great, but the top hatch lid does not latch closed. One out of 10 times closing the hatch the latch works. But the other 9 times the hatch just closes but does not latch or lock closed. I oiled the mechanism inside and...
  3. Covered hatch on the right side of trunk interior

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Anyone know what its for/actually there for? There's nothing behind it in my car. Do I have something missing? I couldn't find any mention of it in the handbook.
  4. Hatch glass defrost plug

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I’m removing my wing/spoiler and I noticed a plug not connected and was wandering if any one knows where it goes or if it’s just there for use in multiple vehicles. I have a 2006 Rover HSE. Here are a couple pictures the second picture is the opposite side where the window is plugged in
  5. massage seats and hatch lights

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Greetings, It seems as though my massage seats are much less strong then they used to be. Is this a common problem or is it in my head? I wish the massagers were stronger. Also, can someone please tell me how to get the lights on in the hatch area. I've owned the car for nearly 3 years and...
  6. Rear Hatch Question

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I'm looking to buy a 2012 RRS - but a deal breaker would be if LR removed the upper rear glass hatch. Is that the case? I know they went to a motorized main hatch but did they remove the functionality of the upper glass hatch? Thanks,
  7. Rust found in rear hatch

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Well, I am shocked to find rust on the rear hatch. On both corners, the paint is flaking and I can see rust has already developed. This is a 2012 RR with only 40k miles. Granted it hasn't been in dry climates all its life but c'mon Land Rover, Hyundais don't rust this fast...
  8. Executive rear seats - ski hatch?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Is there a ski hatch between the Executive rear seats? Or do I have to use the roof rack (which I don't like)? Could anyone publish a photo of the hatch in open/close position? Thanks.
  9. Hatch Release Switch - Problem

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello all, The glass hatch release switch on our Range Rover is not working. Reading online, I see that the hatch needs to be opened in order to replace the switch. The keyfobs are set up to do other stuff. Any ideas on how to change the switch?
  10. Can somebody check their rear hatch?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Can any of your guys take a quick look at the alignment of your rear hatch when its closed? Mine seems to stick out a bit (see photo) and I'd like to know if this is normal (not be be flush with the adjacent panel). You can see that is sticks out a bit. Thanks!
  11. Rear hatch glass not openning/releasing

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Does anyone have any suggestion on where I should start, on trying to fix a rear hatch glass that will not open. The tailgate works fine, but the glass does not pop open. Pressing the release pad/button and nothing happens. Is the release pad a common fail for anyone else? Anyone have any...
  12. 12 Volt Outlet in the hatch area

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    While attempting to use my Rover for a 'tailgating' party I plugged my radio into the 12 volt outlet just to find out it shuts off in about a minute. Does this happen to you as well? What good is this 12 volt outlet if you can't use it while parked? My cheap Jeep and my BMW X5 all stay ON...

  14. Rear hatch

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Is there anyway to stop the trunk from locking when I lock the doors. Every now and then when the doors lock and then unlock I can't open the trunk because the lock is freezing its very aggravating not knowing if I can open my rear hatch or not. Is there a way to bypass the lock feature on the...
  15. Upper Rear Hatch - interior side plastic trim

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi, I have consulted the Rave manual and searched this forum and I can't find instructions on how to remove the upper rear hatch interior side trim pieces. I can find instructions for the upper and lower trim pieces, but not for the side pieces for the 2004 L322. Does anyone know how to remove...

    Hey Guys, Well it has been awhile since my last post... I hope all is well with everyone and all of your RR's are running as healthy as mine!

  17. Upper hatch, lower tail gate. What a pain.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I've been searching the threads regarding stuck tail gate but can't seem to find a fix if there is one. I can hear the servo when pushing the button and the upper hatch always opens but then doesn't like to close (I assume this is a possible misaligned latch). The bottom tail gate however...
  18. Rear Hatch Strut Replacement

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Have 80K miles and six years on the clock. The rear hatch would close with a loud bang, so I figured the two struts needed replacment. Just bought new struts from BA (on sale) and replaced them today. The hatch will now hold in most any position and closes with a solid thud, rather than the...

  20. How hard or soft does your upper rear hatch close?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I'm going to buy some new lift struts but I still don't think that is going to slow it down too much. Example if it's halfway down say about 45 degree angle and I let go it slams 8-0= so hard I'd think it was going to break the glass is this normal or do they close nice and soft with fresh gas...
