Hatch release button?

Sheesh I feel dumb but, if my '82 has a rear hatch release I can't find it. There is clearly a couple of wires leading into the release mechanism but that's where it 'ends'.

Does anyone have a suggestion of where I should look? Could the PO deleted this? I'm puzzled. :confused:

I thought that the hatch release was '84 and up.

John, it might have been '83 when it was introduced (with the US S cars), but certainly they are not in '82 or older 928's...

Thank you both. I'll have to take a closer look at the electrics.

You can look at them, but you don't have a button for the release because you don't even have a hatch release motor back there!

Wires in the hatch area are for the wiper motor. As others have said, there is no remote hatch release for 1982 which is odd for such an expensive car.

Take the tool cover off and take a picture for us so that we can see what you see.

My apologies for the delay. I offer no excuses although I have been so buried in the fuel pump bay and fuse panel lately trying to figure out while it wouldn't start. And, I am pleased to say, after about a month of poking and prodding she runs! Yeah!!! Next, it's to get that really nice dash cover attached (thank you again, Brad) and to try to figure out if I have an electric rear hatch release. Curiously, there are wires leading to the release although I understand that there shouldn't be one as it is an '82. Here are the pics:
Left: wires leading to release
Right: wires to wiper, wires to release

Hard to tell from the pictures, but maybe the wires you see that you think are for the release are actually for the interior light switch?

Right you are! They are the wires for the interior lights. Mystery solved. Thanks to all who helped.
