This happened to me, I removed the interior light fixture on the rear hatch and reached in to pull the connecting rod, this works for an one off opening, you will need to take the panel off once the hatch is open and repair your outer handle, our connection was broken at the handle which I repaired and it works great. Hope this helps.

Hello rear hatch wont open from outside I removed the light on inside of panel on hatch pulled bar and it opens but nothing on outside any idea how to repair?


It might take two people to see what is not happening that should be happening. Have one person on one side of the hatch operate the key or open handle and you stay on the other side of the hatch with the inner panel off and watch the mechanism. There is probably a broken tab on the actuator or a rod has come off of the actuator.

Why will kia sedona rear hatch not stay up?


There should be small pressurized cylinders on each side of the hatch that hold it open. When these get worn they do not have the pressure to hold the hatch open and need to be replaced.

The struts that are used to hold the hatch open are gas filled units and there is no way to repair them. The only solution is to go to an auto parts store and buy replacement struts.

Handle on rear hatch door broke off.how can i open hatch door until i can get a new handle?


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.
