Tailgate glass won't close - C5 estate

Post by hirsty »

Yesterday after not working since I got the car, my tailgate glass came open. ( I didn't open it )The micro switch either hasn't got power or is duff. Now it won't latch shut and I can't lock the car and the rear wiper won't work .
Any idea how to shut it?

I wonder if the glass sense switch has failed. There is a plunger style switch that is used to let the car know when the tailgate glass is closed. If this plunger switch is not closed the wiper certainly doesn't work.

Problem solved. I went back to National Windscreens who replaced it in January. The fitter had it sorted in 5 minutes and no charge. Excellent result. :-D :-D
