Remove the inside trip to the hatch so you can access the internals to replace. Mine had a clip that fell off so I just had to put it back on. Maybe yours is the same.

How do you open the back door (no manual)


Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

How do I open the rear door if the latch handle/lever does not work?


Try to get it open by pulling the hatch lanel off from inside the vehicle and pulling on latch rod. Usually hatches dont open with handle due to diconnected rods or broken release cables. Also, you can use your key fob to open hatch( if equipped)

Rear hatch door in ford windstar-mechanism came apart


My back hatch would not open but it appears the lock was sticking and the return spring to the handle is broken. We used the key to unlock the back door and then door opened. Then husband sprayed WD 40 in all the lock holes. Now once we open the door we have to push the handle back down as return spring is still missing but the door opens :) . My van is a 2002 Ford Windstar.

How do you manually release the rear hatch in a 2003 kia sedona? The outside latch handle does not work anymore.


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.

Broken rear hatch door handle on Toyota Sequioa


It sounds like the handle has become disconnected from the mechanism. You will have to remove the inner door panel and reattch. It is not a complicated or difficult job but if you get a professional it could cost upwards of $100.

Handle on rear hatch door broke off.how can i open hatch door until i can get a new handle?


you don't. take it into a Hyndai Dealership and have the handle repaired/replaced. The rear hatch panel/cover has to be removed (from inside the vehicle) to access the hatch latch and open the door.. from that point the handle can be replaced/repaired.
