Hatch motor

The rear hatch motor just keeps running when it's plugged in. I just unpluged it from the harness and have to slam the S##t out of the hatch to get it to close. does anyone know where to get new motors cheap?

hatch motor

GM part numbers: 20160587 G/NUT AY 12.243, list price $4.57

20160581 HOUSING 12.243 R, list $25.36.

These prices were from last July (2000).

Your plastic housing probably has cracked, allowing the pinion gear to strip the teeth on the ring gear.

These parts (under $35 from GM) repaired mine and it was doing the same as yours. If you are mechanically inclined at all, you can make the repairs in 45 minutes or so. Just don't tighten the screws too tightly in the new plastic housing. You'll see what I mean when you tear it down.
