Hi there

 

This unit has had many problems with the outside handle on the rear cargo doors .. witch can only be replaced with the whole rear license plate assembly,, what would happen is ware the cable hooks to the outside handle ,, its arm will get loose and you can not open it from the outside ,, so if you can open the door from the inside but not the outside ,, then I would replace the whole license plate holder assembly witch will come with the a new outside handle mech ,,see view a in pic below

So if I order the entire assemble does it include the cables with the assembly as well as the down rod for the lock.. Is the replacement unit better designed or will it continue to be a problem. Do you know the exact part number I need to ask for??
Expert:  chris replied 3 years ago.

the new unit does not come with any cables or rods ,, the new has been updated and will last longer then the old one ,,, just ask for the rear license plate holder assembly, and that will be the correct part ..
