My trunk did the same thing; the latch is most likely bad and needs replaced. It's a VW issue, Passats do the same thing. Maybe in the future there will be a recall for this, but I'm not sure.

How do I removed the tailgate door liner panel on a 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara JB?? There is no inner door latch to be removed. We cannot open the rear door as outer handle has broken. Help....many thx


The top bezel pops off. There are usually 2 screws to remove from the top of the bottom bezel on each side. start popping the bottom bezel off the hatch. It won't come out. Screws on the bottom. But you can get if off enough to reach down and grab the latch rod or latch to release the hatch. Yes the latch is at the bottom. And it has levers to move to open the hatch. Once open, remove the screws to remove the bezel, then replace the latch.

Hood latch will not close.


if you look down into the latch with a flash light you should see the hood release cable. it will be attached to a lever. if the lever is stuck all the way to the drivers side than the latch is sticking. Spray some penetrating lube into the latch and then use a thin blade screwdriver to help push it the other way. Continue to spray lubricant, pull the hood release, and move the lever with a screwdriver until it moves freely.

Hood latch stuck freestar


check that the cable is still attached to the latch lever... if not use pliers to pull the cable... sometimes the latch gets stuck... have someone push down on the hood while you pull the latch.

Both rear doors on 2005 x5 does not open neither from inside or outside even though the door knob goes up . what do I do ?


I have had this issue before when all parts seem to work. lay down in back seat and put a blanket over door panel where the latch holds the door shut and kick with your legs to force door loose. you still have to have someone hold the door handle in the open position. let me know if that helps

2003 Trailblazer LTZ Tailgate and back window won't unlatch


I am not sure how to manually release the latch....

however,

if it is electronic, i would check the fuse for it.....normally though on the inside there is a little access to things like that, so you can manually open it...would be like a small lever.

Trunk won't shut


it sounds like the spring in the latch is broken or frozen try some WD-40 and spray it in the latch and the lock then if that does not fix it you may have to replace the latch

Door lock


When the actuator moves the latch up, it connects the outside door handle to the opening mechanism. When the latch is down, the outside door handle is disconnected from the mechanism so that it cannot be opened. So in this case your latch needs to be replaced, the latch or one of its parts is malfunctioning. the outside handle is never beening disconnected from the latch. remove the door panel visually inspect for damage, and take the proper repair
