Tailgate wont open


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have an 07 avensis estate and the handle/switch to open the boot/tailgate has stopped working. For a while it worked intermittently, now nothing at all.

Is there a way to check whether it's a fuse, the handle/switch or the actuator before I start replacing them? If not I am thinking I'll just start replacing them in that order (cheapest to most expensive). Although the fact it worked intermittently maybe points to the actuator?

Can anyone tell me where the fuse is and which one? Any tips on this much appreciated. I have searched around the forums and online but haven't found any specific answers other than a few people replacing the switch.

Also, apologies for what may be a daft question, but do I need to disconnect the power i.e. at the Battery before replacing these parts?

Many thanks
