Question about 2001 Ford Escape
The rear hatch won't open. I understand that I need to replace the Door Lock Accuator. How do I open the hatch when it won't unlock though to replace it? Is there a button somewhere or manual lever? There is NO key hole.
The liftgate consists of the following components:
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Liftgate Latch Removal and Installation
NOTE: Position the liftgate latch release rod by pushing outboard to remove the slack.

The doorlach pin is faulty.
On newer vehicles it is inside the door on the locking mechanism.
It is stuck in the closed position, or has become dislodged.
Refer to your mechanic for repair.

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.

It most likely will be the fuse for the hatch, I would definately check out the fuse before trying other things. If the fuse is ok then it could be the release motor on the hatch.

you could use some lithium grease and spray it in the general area of the latch and hope it lubes the latch enough to loosen it to open. but it will cause a mess spraying it
