Rear hatch lock failure

Wascally Wabbit1

Ready to race!
So this happened today. Not my video but mine did the exact same thing.

Cause...broken plastic worm gear in the locking mechanism.



Got a new lock at the dealer for $85. Was actually cheaper than online unless you get it from china but I am not leaving the trunk unlatched for 3 weeks to save $50.

Simple to install but you need an 8mm triple square. Just remove the back panel, 2 triple square bolts, unplug and remove. Reverse to install.
