SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My rear hatch and glass hatch will not open from the outside.

This is extremely common!
The micro-switch inside the glass hatch release is faulty, telling the door that it is partially depressed, thus shutting down opening for safety reasons.
You can verify this by opening the glass hatch (there is a access panel at the bottom of the door on the inside), removing the trim cover from behind the glass handle (two philips screws and one plastic push in fastener), then unplugging the glass handle.
Your door will now function normally, but without glass opening ability until you replace the handle.
The handle only takes a few 10mm nuts to remove and can be changed in a few minutes. It retails for around $35 from your dealer.

SOURCE: I want to fit a towbar to my ford focus hatch 2008

Pop the Hatchback open and remove the connectors
from the top of the bumper cover.

Optional Step: Using a Floor Jack, raise both sides
of the car in the back, supporting both sides with
jack stands, and remove the rear wheels.

Using Torx Bits, remove the inner rear wheel well
lining.

Get behind the rear wheel well and loosen the bolts
holding the bumper brackets on. They're pretty
difficult to find and remove. Be Patient. Do the
same to the other side.

Remove the rear bumper cover by pulling the cover
outward from the part nearest the wheel on both
sides. Once removed, take off the 2 black mounting
brackets from the bumper cover.

Rear glass & hatch won't open? how do i fix


There is a link which comes loose in rear hatch, the plastic clip get brittle and cracks, allowing the link rod to fall off. You have to release hatch from inside where you remove a few clips and screws to snake a coat hanger to release latch. That is what I had to do on a 2005, which I assume is same mechanism.

Good luck, FREE-PPV.com

I HAVE A 2009 FORD ESCAPE AND THE REAR HATCH WILL NOT OPEN FUSE IS GOOD. PLEASE HELP ME.


You need a latch assembly. Common problem. Open the hatch glass. Then try and lift up and push forward the plastic door panel around the spot where the glass closes into the hatch. It should give you enough room to see the latch assembly inside. Use a flashlight to look for the latch which is in the center bottom of the hatch. There is a white plastic lever. Push or pull on the lever and the door should open. The latch has a electric actuator that goes bad. Only replaced as a latch assembly.

How to repair rear actuator for ford escape hatch


Bad lock actuator: (NOTE: If your hatch is locked)
First remove rear panel- pull the plastic panel at the top center, until (2)clips pop off, then pop (2) more clips at the mid-center. Stick your arm down until you reach the lock, with your fingers, feel for the squishy plastic( inside is the bar that goes up to unlock), it is attached to the lever to unlock. Pull up the lever until you can open the hatch. There are four more clips at the top sides and middle sides, and four plastic screws at the bottom which is only accessible when the hatch is opened.
The lock is only sold as an assembly at $100.

My 2010 ford escape rear hatch window leaks all the time.


For a few years there were recalls on some rear hinges for the hatches. Run the Vin# to see if anything is listed.

Usually there are adjustments on hinge mounts and on the latch mechanism. New rubber moulding would help if the current moulding is torn or compressed.

If you have a sunroof, it may have a drain which is plugged or disconnected at some point and allows water to enter and dump rearward.

In a worst case scenario, the vehicle may have been hit and the opening is not straight enough to seal.

This problem sounds like a body shop or glass shop problem.

Does the rear lift door latch on a 2008 ford escape have a fuse


No the rear door latch is not electric....but does have a electric lock which is fuse 17 in the inside fuse panel....not the one under the hood. The rear lift glass is controlled by electric and is in the same circuit fuse 17. Good Luck

SHATTERED BACK WINDOW FROM CLOSING THE HATCH DOOR


Hello, sorry for the glass shattering, and the inconvenience it caused. However, consider contacting your insurance company - most carriers replace glass for free...or they have a reduced rate - other than the normal deductible.
