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 DOOR?HANDLE FOR REAR HATCH OF 2002 CHEV TRACKER HARDTOP IS BROKEN, HOW DO I GET INSIDE TO FIX WHEN I CAN'T OPEN DOOR?


I have had the same issue with mine. Using the key unlock the door from the outside while at the same time lifting the handle underneath. You may have to bang on the cover of the lock to get it to unlatch as well. Once opened you will find the back cover comes off fairly easily however getting to the lock set can be a challenge. Look at the rod assembly and make sure it is not bent. Mine was bent and out of alignment. I had to get another because it was too weak.

The latch for the rear hatch got flipped to the lock position while the door was open. Now the hatch will not go down, latch or unlatch.


You need to take something like a pen or something round like that and put it in the latch and pull outwards while you use the door handle to 'open' it. Put the pen where the latch is curled together. If you need to look at one of the doors to see what it looks like open. Good luck!

How can I open the top rear hatch door on a 94 astro van if the button wont unlatch it


You will need to remove the interior trim including the handle to pull down the door, then you will be able to slip your hand in and manually trigger the release.

Last time I saw this happen, the linkage had simply popped of, I put it back on and wrapped a bit of safety wire around it to make sure it wouldn't happen again.

Hope this helps.

Rear hatch wont open 2003 chevy blazer 4x4


I too had an issue with my rear hatch. My father in law cut a huge hole in the plastic only to find out there is a manual operation hole behind one of the carpeted panels in the hatch. You simply move the latch with pliers.

Rear hatch is stuck closed possibly from broken glass in lock mec


Removed the inspection cover for the lock mechanism on the inside of the back hatch and used a screw driver to manually unlatch the door while someone else was pulling on the handle. It turned out there was a lot of glass around the pocket where the lock mechanism was possibly binding the lock

Lift gate does not work in 2004 mit endeavor


This is due to the microswitch inside the glass hatch failing. It will not let you open the door because it is unsure if the glass is open or not.

Here is how to verify this:

Manually open the glass hatch.
Remove the two philips screws from the cover on the back of the handle area, and unscrew the plastic plug with the slot in it.
You should now be able to remove the cover.
You will see the harness coming off the glass handle going to a connector. Unplug this white two wire connector.
Your rear hatch should now open normally, just without glass opening.

To repair this, you will need to replace the glass hatch handle. It is a dealer-only part, and the cost is about $35.

To replace it, simply remove the 2 10mm nuts behind it (visible with the cover off that you just removed) and replace the handle and plug it back in.
Now all functions will work.

If you have any questions, just ask :)

2003 toyota sequoia rear door latch broken


First, take off the license plate2_bing.gif.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.

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.
