SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 2000 corvette convertible top rear window came

This is a common problem with many cars. It is delamination. If the window is loose in spots, it can often be repaired with urethane adhesive like glass shops use for windshields. If the glass is more than 30% delaminated, chances of fixing it are slim. With the glass all the way out, you need a new top. Karl at topgunwon.com

SOURCE: how to replace rear hatch hinges

I don't think the hinges themselves are replaceable, you may find the hinge welded to the frame.. You can however replace the hinge pins. The pins are pressed in, and driven out with a hinge punch. Make sure you have a helper though, the hatch is very heavy.

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer and I can get the Rear Hatch to open but the tailgate won't come down?


Hi, check your lift supports or the hinges. If they're dented or bent, they might let the hatch open but not come back down.

Here's a link with a picture of the locations of the lift support and hinges. I hope this helps.

My 2010 ford escape rear hatch window leaks all the time.


For a few years there were recalls on some rear hinges for the hatches. Run the Vin# to see if anything is listed.

Usually there are adjustments on hinge mounts and on the latch mechanism. New rubber moulding would help if the current moulding is torn or compressed.

If you have a sunroof, it may have a drain which is plugged or disconnected at some point and allows water to enter and dump rearward.

In a worst case scenario, the vehicle may have been hit and the opening is not straight enough to seal.

This problem sounds like a body shop or glass shop problem.

My 2001 ford explorer door handles are break over and over why and how do i stop it? even the hatchback handle doesnt work. should i just buy new parts again or another car? driver side ex. door handl


First, go to aboutautomobile.com and look up yourvehicle and a year or so forward and backwards. Under body hardware catagory see if there are any reports to the NHTSA. If there are reports, get the Complaint#, NHTSA# and resolution.

You may have binding in the doorlock mechanism. The rear hatches and hinges were recalled on some Explorers, again check the site for the back hatch.

A glass shop routinely take apart doors to insert new glass. They would be able to adjust a door, as well as a Collision shop. The breaking of the handle can easily be the result of door alignment and bad door hinges. You are needing to use too much force in opening the mechanism.

I hope my solution is useful.

My rear hatch want open from the outside nor will the glass open. I had it checked and they said it wasn't getting power to the door but didn't know what the problem was.


I had the same trouble and found that I had to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is probably defective like mine. I had to release the door by going from the inside and opening a little plastic door and open the whole hatch by using the emergency lever. Then I had to unscrew the plastic panel near the glass hatch and pry it apart just enough to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is just a small connector that pulls apart. There are two connectors. One for the back wiper and then the glass hatch so make sure you disconnect the right one. This allows me to use the whole door but the glass hatch becomes useless unless you get a new switch.

Hatch back won't open - works fine for a while and all of a sudden it won't open


Call the dealer. There was a recall for some Ford hatches and yours may be one of them. There was a problem with the hinges and how the glass was fastened.

Hatch problem


The glass did close and neither the glass or rear hatch would open. It did turn out to be the lower hatch switch which I had replaced.
Thanks for the follow up.

Locked out of Corvette


Hello If your vehicle has lost battery power, open the
hatch/trunk using the vehicle key. The key lock cylinder
is located on the rear of the hatch/trunk lid above the
license plate. Turn the vehicle key clockwise in the lock
That should get you in My dream Car LOL and Thank you for using Fix Ya Bear001
