BigBob :

Greetings and welcome to just answer!!!!

BigBob :

You are trying to remove the rear door panel?

Customer:

Do you have an answer? How to access power seat switch in front right door panel, or check for loose wire?

BigBob :

Yes you do have to remove the door panel. There are 2 screws behind the pull handle, you have to remove those, have you removed those.

Customer:

no--but (4)others

BigBob :

Pull this cover in the picture and remove the 2 screws.

Customer:

then what--total of (6)screws then? what picture?

Customer:

ok--will total of (6) screws be removed?

BigBob :

I don't recall any other screws being removed. The ones you removed were they screwed into the metal frame? After you remove those 2 screws, the whole panel should lift off from there.

Customer:

yes--at the (4)corners of the whole door panel--I did not see the ones behind the pull handle--removing those (2) should release the entire panel? any stick-em?

BigBob :

Yes that should do it. There will probably be a little stick em, but not real bad.

Customer:

I'm most suspect of the switch behind the door panel, but could it be the backrest operator itself?

Customer:

the backrest powers only down but not up.

BigBob :

Yes it could be the backrest itself, but contacts and the switch are most common.

BigBob :

Do you want a wiring diagram?

Customer:

Ok. Thanks. Wouldn't hurt to see a diagram.

BigBob :

Let me know if I can help further,
