2001 Toyota sequoia rear hatch won't unlock

Rear hatch will not unlock. How do I get the internal plastics off while the hatch is closed? Could the actuator just be stuck? It sounds/feels like it is trying to unlock.

Have some one push down while you activate the lock as it may be stuck or under too much load from the sealing rubbers.

2001 Toyota Sequoia Oxygen sensors

No the wires won't likely be the same length

The front upstream sensors, are not the same
Part # as the rear,downstream monitor sensors

Go to Rock Auto.Com & look up your oxygen sensors
I would get the NTK or Bosch,if they have that

You do not replace the rear sensors, until they fail

You replace the front ones at 100,000 miles or sooner,
if they fail

How do I fill the rear washer fluid on a 2002 Toyota sequoia

On alot of SUV's, you have to open the back hatch or tailgate, and there is a washer fluid reservoir either in the door jam of the hatch, or inside the back of the truck.

the sequoia hatchback handle breaking is a known problem due to the extremely low quality of the plastic. 1st you have to open the back door! there is a small pin to the right side of the hatchback door exterior handle. bend a coat hanger and put it on the small pin, pull down and the door will open. Then remove inside panel and you can undo screws and replace the hatchback door handle.

Rear hatch latch was broken, replaced but now when the lock button is pressed on the transmitter the rear hatch releases and opens.

sounds like the linkage is hookup wrong and may be backwards, the release and lock/unlock linkage are in the wrong holes reverse the two and try it, this sounds like the problem.

The rear wiper, rear window washer and the rear on the 2001 sequo

a fuse would only apply if they all share the same circuit. i don't believe they do. i think the only common thread they share is that they are on the rear hatch. look to see if a wiring harness is pinched of chafed through.

I broke the handle to the hatch of my 2003 Toypta Sequoia form the outside. First how do I get in the hatch then how do I go about replacing it?

You can remove the panel from the inside and then open it by a push/pull motion of the rods. You should see two bolts that attach the handle to the deck. You will need to pop the plastic clips loose when you remove the broken handle. Check online on Craigslist first to see if someone is parting out your make and model...there are several years that will interchange. Next move would be to look on ebay and then a junkyard.....last would be the dealership.

You can do this yourself without any special tools.

2003 rear door latch broken how do I get the panel open

if the door is shut, it is a real doozy but i have done it. you have to pry the inner panel off the door using hook tools and small, crowbar shaped tack pullers....kinda like a mini wonder bar. once the panel is off, you have to fish around inside the door and pull the cable on the latch by hand.
