Question type: Maintenance & Repair

rear lift gate will not open; the glass hatch will open w/ key FOB. my key FOB
does not have a hatch opener - so you have to open manually by squeezing
the handle. but it will not open…. how do you remove the plastic inside cover
and what part should I look for or troubleshoot?

OK - i have narrowed the problem down to a lift gate release switch. i have the part but cannot remove the plastic panel from the inside to get to the switch. DOES ANYONE know how to remove the plastic from the inside w/ the hatch CLOSED? I have it almost off but cannot get the lower right side to release; it appears screwed in and you cannot get to the screw w/ the hatch closed? IS THERE ANY GMC MECHANICS OUT THERE?
