Ok here is what I just did. From the inside I removed the handle bolts and the two screws on both ends. (Be sure the other side is pushed in and latched). Then I used a punch and removed the two hinge pins on the roof. ***WITH SOME HELP*** push the release button. Careful for the door will pop out due to the cylinders pushing outward. At that point I removed the molding to access the latch. *Note---there are two more screws on both ends of the molding.* From the inside you can now reach the latch and release it. Again be careful the other cylinder will push out and the door will drop until it reaches the end of the cylinder stroke. Now you will need to re-pin the hinges at the top. From there I located the broken plastic clip that caused all this discuss. I temporarily removed the latch so I can still use the van until I get to the parts store plus it seems as if it will be easier to replace the clip. GOOD LUCK ! ! !

This happened to me, I removed the interior light fixture on the rear hatch and reached in to pull the connecting rod, this works for an one off opening, you will need to take the panel off once the hatch is open and repair your outer handle, our connection was broken at the handle which I repaired and it works great. Hope this helps.

First, take off the license plate.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.

I used a broom. Get in the back row and jam the broom handle under the 2nd row seat. Apply upward leverage and then fold the back rest of the 2nd row seat forwards. This worked first shot for me.
