Swing Gate Handle


Close the rear flip-up window before attempting to close the swing gate (hard top models only).


Driving with the flip-up window open can allow poisonous exhaust gases into your vehicle. You and your passengers could be injured by these fumes. Keep the flip-up window closed when you are operating the vehicle.


Do not push on rear wiper blade when closing the rear flip-up window, as damage to the blade will result.


The swing gate hinges and check strap may require cleaning if a squeak can be heard when opening the swing gate. Progressive accumulation of dirt or debris on the check strap arm may cause failure of the check strap, requiring replacement. For further information on vehicle cleaning procedures.
