    Hi there
    First up, as my first post on here, I would like to give a massive thank you to Joylove for his excellent guide on installing Inpa and NCSExpert! Thankfully INPA is telling me there are no major faults on the car (other than draining the battery in the process, scary!!!).

    Secondly, as the thread title says, I am trying to open the rear glass on my 330d touring to get to the rear wiper mechanism. I have had a good read around and a good poke around under the tailgate trim (the bits I can get to!) and found that you cannot get to the rear wiper mechanism without opening the glass, which I cannot do. I have gone through the fusebox, making sure none have blown and have re-set the rear wiper to the park position (eventually!) and yet I cannot get the button on the rear wiper to open the glass (having dismantled the switch from the outside, all seems fine).

    Now during my reading I have seen mention of dealers being able to open the glass hatch via computer and I have also read that you can re-program the key fob to open the glass hatch rather than the entire tailgate so would like to try one of these options before I go wrecking the trim to get it off and gain access. Does anyone know if either of these options is possible using NCS or is this strictly a dealer option? I have read through the various lists and found the following options relating to the trunk:

    HECKKLAPPE :Trunk lid.
    HECKKLAPPE_ENTSICHERN : open trunk lid with remote control
    HECKKLAPPEN_LOGIK :Trunk lid position?

    Does anyone know if these are related to opening the glass hatch and if so, could you possibly describe how I would go about utilising these options without frying the car?

    Thanks in advance!

    IIRC, you should be able to activate the rear window using INPA, via Central Body Electronics.
