  • Rear Internal Tail Gate Door opening handle ??

    Hi I have a GX Fortuner which doesn't have a internal opening handle for the rear lift up tail gate door, does any one know of after market or Toyota Assessory which can be fitted, I am getting Drifter draws and going to use the rear for sleeping in, being able to open rear from inside would be an advantage. (all my ex landcruisers were equiped with one)

    I use my car for camping a lot , and ive pulled the lock apart to see if i could add a lever / cable , but its not easy. I ended up adding a push button switch across the Black / White / Black stripe wires so i can unlock the door electrically from inside.
    getting access to the manual release is too difficult i dont know why they did it like that

        it only needs to be a pushbutton microswitch ( momentary ) , and placed where it wont be bumped when you are driving along. mine is under the small panel

          Im not sure about the other models , but the GX has a small removeable panel over the lock , which is what you remove to get to the emergency door release.

          connect your ( momentary ) pushbutton across the Black and White / Black wires. White / Black is the earth wire.
