Question
Hi.
My 1999 Freelander Tailgate Window is working in reverse.
When you press open it shuts & press shut & it opens.
And the glass dosen`t drop when you open the tailgate.
Plus the rear wiper & demister don`t work.And when i lock
The Freelander it beeps once,meaning somethings wrong.
All iv`e renewed is the cables,the motor is the original one.
Any ideas?.
Thank`s SID.

Answer
Hi Sidney,

you say you renewed the cables and now window works in reverse?  You need to check how you set that up.

Here's a thread that may help you with your Freelander's tailgate troubles, read the section regarding replacement wires.

Owner of a Discovery. I've had many mishaps with our Disco but I still like this vehicle. Talk to a fellow LR owner instead of a dealership rep. I'm not in this for the money. I'm just an owner who wants to help others.
