MANUAL LIFTGATE LATCH MALFUNCTION

2007 GMC Acadia • 65,000 miles

The liftgate would open on its own for about two weeks. Now it gets stuck and we can't open it at all. It is a manual liftgate with touchpad.

Check the liftgate switch and the latch assembly to include the object sensors

OK, I will check that. Is there a way to access adn open the latch from the inside? And how hard is it to replace the malfunctioning latch? Thanks

Was this ever solved? Same year. Same mileage and imagine that. The same problem.
