Re: Rear door wont open. Lock is dead.

Hi, Billbeat, welcome!

Some members have posted about this problem before, but I don't think anyone has posted details of how they got the panel off. You may have to start with the 'door open' removal guide and improvise.
When you have it apart and if you are feeling ambitious, here is a member's mod for adding a manual release. This is on my list to do at some point and would certainly be helpful if this happened again.

Best of luck getting it sorted out and hopefully someone who has been through this will chime in.

The lock mechanism on the rear door on my FJ has stopped working.
Does anyone know how to remove the rear panel when the door is in its locked position?
