rear hatch release

I have an 88 coupe and I am currently swapping in factory power windows, clock, tilt column, cruise control, and power hatch release from a previously owned 82 z28 everything works fine except the 88 has a power rear hatch suck down I am wondering if it was available with both items becouse there is absolutly no way to mount the release solenoid. does anyone know if there was a design chang in solenoids between 1982 and 1988? or were the two options available together at all. I have a way to make it work but would rather stick with factory parts instead of modifying things especially if all it will take is a new soleniod. any info would be greatly appreciated Thanks.

ok heres the deal yes 88 camaros had the power pull down but havent seen many to think of but my nephew bought a 89 firebird that had one that went bad and the previos owner pried open with a crow bar ruining the hatch. i had a 87 z parts car so i swapped hatches for him no problem he searched all over for a power replacemnet motor and gave up too expansive new or reman and to hard to find in a junk yard. what he eventualy did was to find a bird with a good mechanical mechanism and had the yard cut out the whole assembly then i carefully removed it from his car an from the whole cut out part and welded it into his a little body work and paint an good as new if you need more details give me a yell at [email protected]
