On my rear hatch on my four door, the lock wouldn't go down and lock. I
sprayed wd-40 in there and made it move around by force to lubricate it and
it worked for a couple of weeks and then refused to go down again.
So, one day with time on my hands and for fun, I took apart the back guts
of the door, the panel etc, just to see what was there and it looked really
dusty and dirty, so I brushed it all out and cleaned it it out and then
really got down into spots on the linkage I couldn't get to before and
sprayed wd-40 and then coated the rods with vaseline with my finger and
gave it a prostate lubing!
Now it works perfectly! No problems, 6 months later.
