Maxxes have had this rear sunshade problem ever since '04. The reinforcements usually require removal of the rear roof glass surrounds in order to apply the reinforcements.
Don't feel too bad... the first fix for the '04 were pieces of cardboard glued to the inside of the rear roof glass surrounds. I got the real fix around two years later.
#55 of 73 Non working lift gate latch on 2004 Malibu Maxx
Mar 06, 2009 (6:21 pm)
The lift gate latch on the rear of my 2004 Maliu Maxx works sporadically when it is very, very cold outside. When the outside temperature warms up, neither the driver's door button nor the key fob button can get it to open. I had the lock (motor) replaced twice, but it only worked for a short while.
Any ideas?? Vaman

I know its been awhile since you posted this problem but I'm wondering if you ever found out what it was exactly ... my 2006 Chevy Malibu is doing EXACTLY the same thing ... I've been researching it this morning and I think it may have something to do with the TPS (or body) as I had that replaced not long ago and it seems that others have had a problem with the wiring on these anyway if you were able to get answers I was hoping you would share them. Thank you - Victoria

The renforcements I received were made of hard plastic and all I did to get them fastened was to pull down the rear section of the head liner, pull back the plastic where the reinforcment were to be attched and let the double sided tape set in. Very easy install.

I had the same problem. MAke sure that the plastic moulding and rubber weather strip is pushed all the way down. Oil ( i used w d 40) the heck out of the catch on the rear hatch and the catch. make sure all is clean. That seemed to work for me and had to be done on a regular basis. It was something I had to live with. i did not have the motor replaced.

my 05 maxx just started doing this a few days ago. i took it to the dealer and there were 13 error codes but they could not find the problem. they replaced driver front turn signal because it was out and said that could have caused some kind of short?? my car has stalled twice since. now i have to take it back. Its pretty frustrating

It ended up having to replace the ebcm thats located right in front of the windshield washer filler neck. Since then I haven't had that problem. At least not sofar!!!! Just keeping my fingers crossed. I got lucky in that it was still under warranty. That ecm was pretty expensive.
