Replace Trunk Lid Lock Assembly

I need to replace the Trunk Lid Lock Assembly on my 1997 Hyundai Excel 3 Door Hatch after someone tried to break into it and busted the lock. Do I need to remove the entire Trunk Lid trim to access the lock assembly or does the small rectangular trim panel located near the lock pop out somehow. If it does pop out of the trim, how do I prise it out without damaging it, or is there another way to replace the Lock Assembly, thank you. Grahame

SOURCE: hyundai accent '02 inside door handle & Lock removal

Removing the door is very tricky, trust me on this. I ended up breaking it the first time, so please learn from my mistake.

1. Remove all visible screws: 2 at bottom of door, 3 on front near hinge, 1 on inside the door lever. You will need an average size phillips screwdriver to do this.

2. On the door handle itself, you will see two circles. Pop the front one out. You will need a LARGE size phillips screwdriver to do this.

3. Once screws are removed, take a (standard) flat-head screwdriver, preferable one with a large face, and pry the triangular piece of plastic (that covers the outside SIDE mirror) off. This will aide in puting the door panel back on...TRUST ME!!!

4. Take the same flat-head screwdriver, and pry behind the door lock (at the same time, push forward toward the door hinge). The assembly should pop out.

5. Gently pry the door panel from the door, making sure not to break any unnecessary pieces along the way. The door panel should be hanging by the window sill opening.

6. This is where it will get tricky. It is advised that you use help with this part: Angle the door panel at a 45 degree angle. AT THE SAME TIME, slightly bend and twist the door lock handle until it fits through the hole. You will see the 3 pegs the held it in the door from before. Also note: Be careful not to break the 2 poles that are attached to the lock.

7. After popping the lock through the hole, you should be able to lift the door upward, and off the sill. Repeat these steps in reverse order to re-attach door panel.

Be careful not to rip sound-deadening paper found on inside of door unless you intend to remove or replace it! Not only does it prevent dirt and moisture from entering your door (and possible rusting it from the inside out), but it makes your speakers sound better too!

-SportTunerFreak

**It is also recommended to put a tiny bead of silicone on the inside of the door panel to help suppress any rattling, and prevent moisture and dust from entering. It also helps your screws obtain a tighter fit. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Busted trunk and gas tank lids switches

Your best bet is to invest in a Chilton book on your specific vehicle. It will give you pictures and exact directions on how to do this. All Checkers or what ever auto service center you have in your town will carry them. Just a useful warning though - don't buy knock off's just buy the Chilton. Good rule of thumb ALWAYS put it in the same way you took it out. Good luck!!!!

SOURCE: How do you replace rear tail light assembly?

Open the trunk and along the bottom of the tail light, there should be a Philips screw securing a cover piece. (your car may or may not have this piece)
With the cover off, there will be another 2 screws securing the bottom of the tail light assembly. Remove the screws and pull the bottom out and the top is held in by two retainers that should just slide right out

SOURCE: rear hatch will not open,how is the interior trim

look for any plugs that may be covering screws around outside edge, as well as obvious screws, then the rest will probably be push/pull clips. Usually a quick **** will release them.

SOURCE: I would like to replace the headlight assembly of

There is a little aluminum stick in the assembly holding it in. On the top of the headlight twist the stick and remove it. It will look like a tent stake. Remove this stick and then the head light assembly will almost fall out.

How to replace BMW X5 E53 Trunk Upper Lid Latch


First, watch your fingers, this can be hazardous. You may only need an adjustment in the mating surface of the latch. If you have an automatic pull-down feature on the lock, then more care will be needed to adjust this.

Because of the linkage inside the door, and electric connections, you most likely will need to remove the decorative doorlid panel. There can be conceled bolts if everything is not held together by plastic snaps.

But for the striker plate assembly in the bottom of the cargo frame opening, you may only find a big loop of metal with several bolts holding it in place. If any heavy object was recently raked across this fixture, then the adjustment may have been smashed out of alignment. You only need to reset this metal loop to provide for a tight latching fit.

Bet to check afterwards with a garden hose to see if the seal is tight.

An alternative repair shop could be a Glass shop. The procedure to replace a rear window inside the hatch depends on how it is hinged. A shop such as this could work on the latch. Also Collision shops would be very good for Body alignment issues involving latches.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Fuel Filler Lid won't open


it sounds like you have a broken cable that connects from the inside of the car to the release of the gas tank. now the other release ( you said the book says is in the trunk on the lefthand-side ) it is probably under the lining of the trunk because most of them are not in plan sight for you to see.

How do I remove the manual window winder handle ?


I have to do the same with my door handle on my excel. The Window winder is held on by a sort of circlip thingy and they do make a special tool to remove it, and i would reccommend buying it or even borrowing one from a local mechanic. it is possible to remove it with a screwdriver and some wire but it is very hard and fiddly as you have to do it blind.

My hyundai car (1998- accent - coupe) battery is flat and its not getting opened...since it has central locking system..


Your key should work manually (without battery) on at least one door or the trunk/hatch. Otherwise the world would be filled with abandoned hyundais with flat batteries and no way to get in! Try the passenger side door; don't expect to hear the central locking relay, but if you turn the key far enough, that door should open.
