    It sounds like the lock actuator has failed or has a poor connection which won't allow the latch to release. What you will need to do is remove the inside rear hatch panel to access the lock actuator. Once you get to the latch use a flat screwdriver to release the latch being careful not to damage the glass.

    How do i replace the rear hatch struts on a 2005 honda pilot

    There are small spring clips on the top and bottom of the strut. Place a small flat blade screwdriver in the notch out and pull the clip out - the strut will slide off the ball joint when the clip is pulled.
    Apparently the struts are matched, so order the left side or right side strut as needed. I'm off to the dealer now to pick up my replacement . . . . .

    2005 Honda Pilot Rear Air

    the blower for the rear air has a screen that like screen in your clothes drier or the screen on your hair drier will get loaded up with lint and junk. it is a bit of a pain to access, you have to remove the right hand kick panel on the driver's side and then you could see the screen. good luck.
