The latch on the back door is faulty and must be replaced.
You need to flush a differential more than once only when you have massive contamination of the oil - if you would have had that you would have clearly noticed it - the diff would have had made an awful lot of noise. Burnish? Why ? Is your car a showroom one? The only time you really need to thoroughly clean the rear diff is before you completely dismantle it.
And yes, all 3 operations can be done by you. Buy this repair manual
and follow it to the letter. Beware, the bolts on the heat shields have been seized in place by the heat , you will most likely shear them before unscrewing so don't be afraid of forcing them if necessary.

    You can buy it from wherever you can find it - i put the Amazon link because i know that it's easy to get books from them. But you could get it even directly from Haynes.

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.

The Rear hatch door handle does not unlock

had this problem myself.... you gotta go in through the back and take the plastic/vinal cover off the rear door and look for the lock from the inside..... unlock it .... open the door and then you can repair and lube the mechanism while standing outside like a human being. its not very hard to do.. just take your time and don't force anything.

Have a 2006 chevy hhr LT back hatch door wont lock or unlock.All other doors do with both key and inside lock.Hatch wont budge?

There is a manual release on the inside of the hatch door.
Somewhere in the center of the door under an oval cover plate you can open it with a screwdriver.
