2007 yaris hatchback latch will not engage to open

Bike rack sits on hatchback, metal hooks stick in between hatchback's hinges to support. We've been opening the hatch with the bike rack in place, but now the latch will not engage when unlocked. Can't open back hatch possibly due to bike rack situation. Please advise. Or not, there's a dealership nearby.

SOURCE: Toyota 2000 Sienna Hatchback latch broke

YOU HAVE TO TAKE OFF THE DOOR PANEL ON THE INSIDE OF THE HATCH, IF IT WONT OPEN YOU HAVE TO DO IT FROM THE INSIDE, THEN THERE ARE 3 10MM BOLTS YOU TAKE OUT AND THE HANDLE AND PLATE LIGHT BRACKET WILL COME OUT AND YOU CAN REPLACE THE HANDLE... FYI MOST TIMES THE HANDLE BREAKS BECAUSE YOUR ACTUAL LATCH IS RUSTED OR FROZEN SO YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE BOTH!!

SOURCE: The latch that opens the Trunk (Hatchback - as it

If you still have the broken piece, you can try to use that to try to open the back. Otherwise, you have to open it from the inside.
I changes mine in 2007 so if memory serves me, I had to remove the back panel and pull on the cable to open the door.

Now to see and pull on the cable, and replace the latch, you have to take off the inside liner/panel to get to the latch to replace it. This took about 2 careful hours to replace.

The trick is to get the two side pieces off.
These two plastic pieces are next to the window on the left and right sides. Each piece is about 3 inches wide and 18 inches long. Using a strong grip, or a pry bar or large screwdriver, take off both pieces. There are three clip areas that holds each piece in.

If you are using a tool, be careful to protect the area by wrapping a towel on the screwdriver/tool.

After that the bottom liner piece pulls away and you can see the latch.
There are two screws/bolts that holds the latch.

The two pieces snaps back in pretty easily.

You probably broke the plastic piece shaped like a J.
You can try to glue the pieces back, but note that the piece broke due to age. I changed the whole assembly - good for another 7 yrs. I could not find just the plastic piece.

How do I open the fuel door on a 2007 chevy avalanche


My guess is the rubber bumpers for the fuel door are missing causing the door to sit in too far. Probably need like a pocket screwdriver to pop it open. New bumpers are available.

Yaris hatchback wont open


The remote may have a bad battery or the system has lost programming, refer to the owner's manual to change the battery in the remote and if that doesn't cure it the dealer must use a special tool to reprogram the system to the remote frequency. This solution is based on the fact that both the remotes don't work, the remote can be bad, this is esp true if it has been dropped.

How to open hood 2008n nissan versa hood latch cable broken


I know a trick from a local body shop. If you have a sawzall with a metal blade, then cut the latch to open the hood, and go to a salvage or junk yard to get a replacement and install. Be sure to put a new cable in to replace the broken one, of course.

I locked the rear hatchback by putting a hook into the lock, now I can't get it to unlock.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It may be your latch actuator. Go ahead and check your #10 fuse and #18 relay first though.

My chevy aveo 5 hatchback door wont open what can I do to fix it


I removed the panel on the hatchback from the inside; there's a metal rod that goes from the lever to the latch. You can move the rod to open the hatch. There's a plastic clip that keeps it all together. On mine that plastic clip is broken. Trying to figure how/where to get a new one. You'll need small hands...
