Well... It must say something for things made in Mexico: They're built to not come apart. I cannot get that damn back panel off. Unscrewed the 4 t-20 screws. Removed the silicon from the hole. Now I can't get the plate off...

I even tried using a steel pin and table vice, and it just bent the pin. Literally won't come off. LOL

Any suggestions?

I just used 5-6 flat blade screwdrivers and wedged them in between the cover and housing. Just dont go too deep. Once you get it started, it will break loose. Just wedge evenly.

Thanks. There's absolutely no room. Here's what mine looks like. I can't even get a steak knife in there.

Yep... I think I would have been able to fix it, but there's absolutely no way that back panel is coming off my EBCM so I have to send it to the pros.

I always suspected it would be an easy fix. Add the door lock switches to things with bad solder joints.

Yeah, I know. NOT coming off on mine. I tried everything to get that lip to come up. This thing is like it's welded on. No joke.
