My hatch won't latch anymore. I can hear a piece moving inside of the assembly when I open and shut it. Anyone else have this happen?<br>

Is this the same "won't open from the button, requires the key" we talked about way down the list here? Or, is it new "won't latch when closed" problem? <p>My latch broke for a second time, this weekend at Road Atlanta. Have to use the key to get the hatch open. The first time, it was fixed in a week or two. Parts to be ordered.<p><i>: My hatch won't latch anymore. I can hear a piece moving inside of the assembly when I open and shut it.

No, the thing wouldn't latch shut at all. A part had to be ordered but my service advisor told me that there is a redesigned latch on the way and he wants to put it on my car when it's available.<p>-Anthony<p><i>: Is this the same "won't open from the button, requires the key" we talked about way down the list here?

Did your service advisor say when the new latch would be available? Is it being included on Y2K models?

He didn't give me any indication. I would imagine that the defective hatch is on Y2K, because if it were available then I don't see why BMW would waste the money installing a part in my car that they are going to have to replace again. I guess everyone is going to have to get a new one.<p>No big deal though, I certainly wouldn't let it stop me from buying if I were you.<p>-Anthony<p><i>: Did your service advisor say when the new latch would be available?
