Added Rear Door Opener

I camp out several times a year and sleep in the back of my RAV. I often wished I could open the rear door from inside and found a pretty easy way to do it. I drilled a 2" hole through the door and clamped a 12" long piece of 1/4" diameter aluminum rod to the actuator rod. The rod has a couple of dogleg bends to come up and through the hole I made. I then threaded the end of the rod and added a plastic knob with a 1/4"-20 female thread. I kind of took an educated guess as to where to drill a 3/8" hole through the plastic door panel. It works like a charm and it only cost me $3.00 for the knob. I had the rest of the parts laying around.

If you're anywhere near Luzerne County, Pennsylvania maybe I can pay you to do this to our 2009 RAV4 that we just bought. Do you have a video?
