    My Dad has given me his old 2.4 Surf as a run-around - nice BUT at the back end not much works!

    1) Rear windscreen wiper & wash

    2) Rear window will not go up or down

    3) Because of (2) cannot open rear tailgate

    Can anyone help? 1 out of 3 would be a start!

    Is it just the rear wiper doesnt work or missing, if its missing or not seated correctly this will prevent the rear window from opening.
    Make sure window lock button is not depressed
    By removing the inner cover on the tail gate and undoing the metal plate under that you can get access to the moter etc to check for voltage etc
    Say not always what you know, but always know what you say.

      I had the same problem when i got my surf, the rear window would not go up or down, when i tried open it with the key, the motor spun but the window didnt move, after taking the panels off to find the motor i found that the plastic gear wheel inside the motor had stripped, finding a new motor is pretty easy as theres always some on ebay or on this forum, also changing the motor is very easy as only 3x 8mm bolts hold it on and aslong as your window is fully extended you can get access to the bolts easy enough.

      This is assuming your motor is spinning when you try with the key

          There are 3 8mm headed bolts holding the motor to the mechanism.
          Do you know that, with a 50 character limit, it's

              Most left hand (rear, as they see less use) door window motor from a similar aged toyota will fit.

                Where are you based bradders ?

                I just swapped me rear passenger door motor for me rear window one.
                Don't take long, just don't break the glass and make sure you grease your runners.
                Oh and keep fingers away from the mechanism when removing the motor cus the spring will act against it and fling the arms round at you......
                Best clamp in a vice to stop this happening.
