    Took the long rod key thingy and inserted it into rear bumper hole and cranked and cranked and nuthin' happened...:confused: Is there some magic words I'm supposed to chant or is there something other than the owner's manual that I'm missing?

    Thanx...

    I know this sounds dumb, but are you sure you used the correct end into the lower mechanism? I've had friends do this and call me and I found they were trying to use thye wrong end. So they were just turning and turning and turning.....

    Give it a good kick or hit with a hammer. It might just be stuck..
