Looking for a good way to do my hatch aswell, can't be that hard...Keithh said:electronic release... the only way to go.
Remove that old crusty POS and step up to the 21st century.
Easy too. Simply run 12V+ into a button in the dash... a line out to the solenoid in the back... and finally a ground wire off the solenoid. There is plenty of room for this in the back... and you can get a cool button to put anywhere you want.
KeithH - no more cable release for me (still need to do the hatch).
