Hello Roy and Welcome.My name is ***** ***** Sorry to see you have had a wait.Its quite normal yes for you to get spattered with oil when the cap is removed with the engine running - so thats normal yes.Re the tailgate glass issue - this can be one of a couple of things- on the electrical side, you can get chaffed / broken wires going from the car to the tailgate - so check on that. Or inside the tailgate.If thats all ok- you need to check the actual mechanism - as thats the most likely fault with that then.. It will need checking as above to determine the issue --Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now at this point- Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that ... Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out -- Best Rgds, MIKE
