2010 Discovery 4 3.0 TDV6 HSE Auto Barolo BlackDiscovery 4
Top Tailgate Micro Switch

Searched and all references seem to come back to the D3 section so

Is the D3 upper tailgate switch assembly the same as the D4. I found a you tube video of how to remove it on a D3 BUT my D4 switch is refusing to come out with the ease shown in the tutorial.

Just wondering if there is anything else retaining it on a D4

Reason for removal is it has stopped working today, I can open it fine with the key button. Been able to peel off the rubber and no corrosion at all present.


EDIT

I worked out how to get it out. Tested the wires. Switch is actually working ok BUT no response from the latch.

Any ideas what could be wrong.

Thanks

Well I fixed it. Broken wire in the first part of the harness from the switch to the multiplug. There is a little pinch point as it goes through the door panel and the wire had fatigued and broken.

Good find, it’s a good feeling when you find the issue and fix it yourself.
This might also help someone else in the future.
