Wasn't Tedolph planning to make this piece with rubber sandals and glue?The only thing I can think of. Put the rear seats down. Crawl back to the rear hatch. There are 4 plastic plugs holding on the interior trunk cover panel. Pull that panel off. You should be able to release the hatch to open. Your going to to need to replace the license hood handle.
Hard to say. My hood and handle, was replaced under warranty. When Fiat went to the updated LED’s under the license hood. Never had a issues, with either designs. All I know, you will have to replace the whole unit. $124.00.Is this more frequent for certain year models?
