I have a MCS 02 and all of the sudden the rear hatch will not catch and lock. I saw many posts regarding the "rattle" but that isn't my problem. Is there anyway to get into the lower lock and fix it or should I take to dealer in Miami?

Errr if you are as stupid as me you may have caught the emergency release cable on
something so the cable length is now longer which has the effect of being the equivalent
of pulling the cable. I don't think you can do this unless you have removed trim and/or
seat so it's a long shot. I swore a lot when I thought it was something broken then swore
at myself when I discovered the problem :eek:.

I had the same problem in my first week of ownership. It happened at the office so I called BMW assist. The guy did something with a can of WD40 and a screwdriver (reset it somehow). Haven't had any trouble with it since. :)

Try screwing in the rubber bumpers on the tailgate too, sometimes theyare a little to long and stop the tailgate catching completely - it just bounces off.
