Tailgate Actuator /operator Rattle In Roof


Recommended Posts

Our 2005 RX330 rear tailgate actuator mechanism rattles, when you shake the open tailgate. Rattle is located above the roof liner. I have an Owners Manual, but is gives very little detail on Roof Liner removal, tailgate actuator motor and mechanism, etc. I need to remove the roof liner to determine what needs to be tightened on the tailgate actuator.

Are there any tricks to removing the roof liner. I assume the removal of the side panels are required to expose bolts securing the liner. Also, the hand holds (handles above the doors) must be removed. Anything else?

I do most of the family's car repairs. I am tempted to just start diassembling, but have gotten some very accurate information on my two previous posts. Always want to work smart, and a little less hard.

Thanks in advance for assistance.
