The only way to open the rear door is by sneaking toward rear of the car from inside, lifting plastic trim and cover, and operating the lock from inside of the car with a big flat screwdriver.

Do this only in case of emergency, as this operation may damage the lock.

Lift gate will not open


If you can hear the lock and unlocking of the mechanism in the rear door latch with the key fob and the electric button on the side doors, but the outside handle will not open the rear door, then the handle has broken off from the inside. The plastic handles can now be replaced with stronger metal ones. Several other possibilites, including cables and actuator problems. Sequoia owners have had a lot of problems with this. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Handle on the outside of back lift door has come unhooked on the inside of the door


Is not unhook is broke is a common problem you need a new one.

This is what we do at the dealer to open the gate, when you get your new handle pay attention how is designed, now you know how you going to go true the little hole and stick a curb screw driver and catch the inner lever to open the door, you may have to brake the section of the old handle that is in your way, between your tool and the hole.

2003 Toyota Sequoia Tailgate Latch - how to replace


Remove your tag bolts and remove the cover by pulling easy as not to break the tabs. The tag lights can but do not have to come out. At this point you can access the handle. You will find that the handle has a plastic arm that trips the latch by pulling a cable it will be broken. To open the door just pull on the cable. Once I open the door I removed the inside door panel and a metal cover which has about 8 10mm bolts it gives you more room to work.
