I have a 2008 V70, 3.2 na.

So yesterday the wife tells me when she pushes the button on the key fob to open the rear gate it makes the sound that it is unlocking but then gets stuck and recloses. So I try to open it by hand and it does the same thing unless I pull at the same time.

I don't see anything bent or out of place. So I watched as I push the key fob open button and it seems to have problems pushing (lifting) the rear right side (as you are facing it; aka rear right passager side, USDM) open.

Does anyone know what is going on here?
