I have had the same issue twice...My mechanic was able to open the hatch from the outside using an offset screwdriver. When the handle breaks you have a small opening that you can insert the offset screwdrive in...You can feel around and find the actual trigger that releasese the lock....You have to push down on it...and puff it will open..

The reason this happens is that the lock gets gummed up and rusts...It is a porr design...I make sure I lubricate at least once a month to enssure it does not get gummed up

SOURCE: My 2004 Toyota Sequoia rear door will not open -

Dig out the broken bits of door handle, then on the right side insert a flat head screwdriver diagonally up and fish around for the release lever.
Push up on the screwdriver handle to manipulate the release lever down and your tailgate will open.
Remove the interior panels by unbolting the 10mm bolt behind the strap and pulling off the interior pieces held on by plastic pop fasteners.
Remove the 10mm bolts around the perimeter of the interior cover plate and let it hang by the harness.
Remove the license plate.
Remove the license plate trim panel (multiple push fasteners from behind and a few 10mm around the lock)
Replace the handle.

Hi Bluee

I am sorry but even though you provided a great answer your peers are no longer allowed to vote for you without fear of disciplinary action.

However on this occasion I will risk it for a biscuit

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.

How can i get the back door to open if my latch is broken?

You need to take out the broken piece and you will be left with a rectangle hole to insert a tool. I took a screw driver and bent the last inch over just past 90 degrees. I then inserted the bent end in and felt the latch mechanism (it is horizontal). Put the tip of the bent screwdriver on the lever and then pull down. Make sure the hatch is unlocked. You can pry open the space between the glass and the rubber and look down with a flashlight if you have trouble feeling the latch. There is also a good video on You Tube. Type in Sequoia rear latch handle and you should find it. It is about 10 min long and show you how to take off the inside panels to replace the broken part

The 5th door of my 2006 Sequoia was very difficult to open. Today the handle broke and I can no longer open the door.

as it broke, you need to replace the handle only! then use Anti rust spray to the lock from time to time... it'll be ok! the lock is exposed to accumalation of dust, dirt and lubricants as it is in the bottom of the door, so you need to take more care about it. handle will cost you $60 to $72
if you have some skills you can do it your self, or take it to a technician

Back door handle do i get the cover off to fix it to open it again?

use a long screwdriver, approx 8in and skinny. Under the handle you will see the broken part on the right side. remove that part and insert screwdriver striaght up as possible, then point down to push lever inside door. REMEMBER to unlock doors first, after inside panels removed and license plate, you can remove the license plate box and replace handle

Broken rear hatch door handle on Toyota Sequioa

It sounds like the handle has become disconnected from the mechanism. You will have to remove the inner door panel and reattch. It is not a complicated or difficult job but if you get a professional it could cost upwards of $100.
