May just be coincidental but who knows i have seen were someone just got aggressive with handle and it breaks the ear off were cables attach on several different models of vehicles you should remove latch assembly look a little closer and investigate what actually is cause and if you feel this happened while in thier possesion and could have been avoided maybe return to the shop and discuss with manager/owner they may assist you in repairing not that i,m a lawyer or anything but may repost with more info if this didn,t help

How do you open the back door (no manual)


Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

How do I open the rear door if the latch handle/lever does not work?


Try to get it open by pulling the hatch lanel off from inside the vehicle and pulling on latch rod. Usually hatches dont open with handle due to diconnected rods or broken release cables. Also, you can use your key fob to open hatch( if equipped)

How do I get my rear hatch door open,when you can't open it from the outside?


You can get it open in two ways: By using your key fob and remotely opening latch or by pulling inside panel on rear hatch and manually pulling lever to get latch to release. Most times when you cant get rear hatch to open normally is because cable from outside release handle to latch broke. Have cable and release mechanism inspected and replace worn or broken parts as needed.

Rear hatch wont open on a 2010 dodge caliber


There is no lever or any key hole it is a fully electric operated power latch. As to the cause the park brake must be engaged and the car in park gear position before the hatch will open, is it?

2004 pontiac aztec rear hatch latch


HIt the unlatch button twice, sometimes three times. As it was explained to me
it has to be tight in the winter so it doesn't fly up in the summer. You could also try cleaning the damper rods on either side of the hatch, and make sure that the
mounts for them are still tight. It's the nature of the beast.

2005 GMC BACK HATCH WON'T OPEN


It sounds like the lock actuator has failed or has a poor connection which won't allow the latch to release. What you will need to do is remove the inside rear hatch panel to access the lock actuator. Once you get to the latch use a flat screwdriver to release the latch being careful not to damage the glass.

My rear hatch will not open with key, or remote control or the button used to pop open the rear hatch.


Thanks for using FixYa and welcome to the site. There is usually a cable that connects from the button to the latch. It may be broke. You may be able to get another key made at a dealership or by calling a locksmith.
