Can you get a pair of 'needle nose vice grips' and get a hold of what's left of the handle to turn it?

    Go at it from the inside. Take the plastic cover off the rear door, then pop it open. Then you can work it from the outside once it's open.

the inside door handle is probably broken. the cable may have popped out but usually its because the clips on the inside door handle break off. luckily you can just replace the handle and not have to get a whole new door panel

Back door will not open from the inside


The linkage has most likely come loose from the back side of the inside handle or the handle where the linkage attaches has broken. You must pull out the interior door handle to know for sure. Might be as simple as putting the metal rod (linkage) back into the handle and securing it.

2003 toyota sienna lift door knob broken. how to open the ldoor


The handle that broke had a little 'finger' that actuated the release mechanism. The only way to open the back hatch is to remove the inner panel and push on the release mechanism.

Once off, you can either a) buy a replacement handle (expensive) or b) do what I did and simply make a piece of L-shaped metal to lever the release mechanism from the outside.

If your handle is completely off of the door you can look up under the little plastic cover (that hides the handle) and see the slot on the right side that the release handle inserts into. You need to stick the lever into that slot, and angle it down about 30 degrees from horizontal to get under the latch mechanism, which unlocks the hatch if you pry it upwards.
