1999 Acura Integra rear hatch dilema

Ok, a friend of mine is telling me that the hatch on her Integra won’t unlock. When she hits the button or turns the key, there’s a click, but it doesn’t unlock. Has anyone else had this problem? Does it just need a shot of 3 in 1, or does it need the power lock replaced?

Try this. Press down on the hatch lid while turning the key or pressing the electric unlatch button. If that allows it to work, then it likely just needs to be lubed. I wouldn’t use 3-In-1, as it’s too heavy bodied. Go with Tri-Flow, if you can find it. Failing that, look for a light teflon spray lube that is safe for use around rubber (gaskets).
