I've thought about the slider: it can have thinner packaging than a door or shutter approach. Probably easier to make, too. And when open, it's out of the way.

Worst case scenario, you get out of the car and push the slider open.
I'd look at the door or shutter approach. Usually there is room for it.

I was referring to the block itself, not the cable. When cables act up it's usually due to lack of lube, or a kink, both of which are easily rectified.
