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.

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.

Door handles (exterior)


This won't solve the problem once the latch is broken, but can help keep you from breaking your door latch on cold frosty days.

Shortly after buying my 99 Park Ave I noticed that the rear door handle on the driver's side was black, instead of painted gold to match the rest of the car. I presume that the previous owner had the problem mentioned above. To avoid breaking the flimsy plastic handles when my doors are frozen shut (which is often during the winter in upstate New York!), I use the remote to unlock the doors, then I open the rear door first. By opening the rear door first you can grab the edge of the door at the wheel well, while pulling gently on the latch. By applying most of the force to the edge of the door at the wheel well you can avoid breaking the door latch.

While the rear door is open you can repeat this process to open the front door, grabbing the edge of the door in the crack created by the open rear door, and lifting gently on the front door handle. (Just make sure the rear door isn't closed in the process or you will crush your fingers!) This approach has worked many times during the last two winters that I have had my Park Ave. Hope it helps others!
