Removing EcoSport’s Rear Door Panel

This video demonstrates how to remove EcoSport’s rear door panel in order to access the wiper mechanism, the windshield washer sprayer tube, the rear windshield heater, and the rear door lock actuator. In the video, I explained how to properly remove the retaining clips, and how to use a plastic prying tool in removing the panel.

Rear Door (Boot Door) Lock

Unlike in the other doors of the EcoSport which can be opened manually by pulling the door handle, the rear door lacks this feature and can only be opened by pressing a switch. Integrated in the rear door is an electro-mechanical device that moves the unlock mechanism—this is called an actuator (you can learn more about the rear door actuator here).

As you close the door, it is pressed against a spring, and then it latches. When you press the unlock button, the door opens as soon as the actuator releases the latch. Because of this design, dirt and grime may cause the rear door’s unlock mechanism to malfunction.
