Re: Rear door wont open. Lock is dead.
I had mine quit working on my '07. The lock wouldn't do anything and after a few tries then it would work. I had the Tuffy drawer in mine so it covered most of the back door when shut. I looked and I'm not sure if it pops out or not, but there is a piece in the door panel that might pop out for access. I was heading in to get the FJ serviced and it was acting up again so I had my mechanic check it out and he cleaned it up and lubed it a bit and told me to work it several times to loosen it up. It had been filled with dust from all of the dirt roads I drive. I messed with it a bit, but it still stuck a few times and shortly after that I traded it in on my Tundra so I don't know if it ever freed up and worked okay or not. If I remember right there is a little square about 1 1/2" x1 1/2" on the door panel too that might allow access for a coat hanger or something. Not sure how that lock and everything works.
Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...
