Hi
A few months back all my central locking stopped working, then the engine immobilised and even inputting the EKA code had no effect, two so-called specialists later and no fix. Finally I decided to try and fix it myself, bought a brand new driver's door lock actuator from my Land Rover main dealer, fitted it and now this lock works fine and operates off the remote keyfob, and the car starts fine -- yes I was very pleased with myself, and only £120 for a brand new actuator when people are paying £80 on Ebay for old ones!

Anyway, after fitting this the upper tailgate has started to open again, but despite the button making a noise when depressed, the lower tailgate remains firmly shut. Any ideas please or indicators as to what replacement part I need now and how I should go about accessing this - presumably one can working from inside the car?!

Apart from the driver's door with its new actuator, none of the other locks operate remotely - does this mean I need another 3 new actuators?

Finally I cannot calibrate the sunroof anymore - annoying sunroof not set message up constantly - - any handy hints please?

thanks, daniel

If you can remove the carpet trim on the lower tailgate you can access the lock. There are three plastic screws under the tailgate finish trim, turn them 45 degrees and you should be able to maneuver the carpet board out. There are two rods that actuate the releases on the sides of the tailgate, they should have green and blue rubber covers on them. Once youve got access, push the tailgate button while pulling the rods inward and it should open. At this point you may want to adjust the catches on either side of the tailgate, that should hopefully solve your problem.

I had a similar tailgate problem a few months ago.

It ended up that the lock had become a bit loose, and until I got around to fixing it .
all did was put a bit of pressure on the lock (the greasy bit that the top tail gate latches) with a finger as I pushed the button.
