Actually this is an ongoing complaint with consumer reviews, not only the rear latch but sliding doors as well. latches are breaking easily. Unfortunately, since you can not access the rear panel with the door closed, you will need a special tool that is not available to the public. (go figure). you may be able to remove some of the existing latch and bend a piece of metal to get inside the latch cover, but will be very difficult. Im sorry i could not have been more help, and good luck to you.

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.

Not sure about your car, but on my Chrysler mini van the same problem happened. The problem was not the motor but the body control module. The unit had 2 relays, but the BCM actualy controls the unit. To replace the BCM was $450. I bypassed the problem by installing an on/off switch inside the car and activated the motor by by passing the BCM at the relay. That was 3 years ago, still works great. Your BCM may be the problem. Check the schematics of the relays and try doing the same.

If you don't have the manuals, your local library has online access to most service manuals that you would have to pay for. Many time you can get access to them through their website if you have a library card. If not, go the library and get full free access to all the major car service manuals for free!

Safari rear door latch broken


It could be that the rod has come detached from the latch mechanism itself. I had this problem on my 94 Safari. I had to remove the panel for the hatch portion (I have the dutch doors) and release the door manually (Terrible design not having an easily accessed internal release!). Once you have the door open, you can reconnect the rod into the original socket. I recommend using some safety wire through some existing holes to pull the rod tightly into the socket, but not so tight that the rod will not move. another option is to use a clip like this one that fits around the rod and linkpoint. Either of these will keep the rod firmly in place.

Handle on rear hatch door broke off.how can i open hatch door until i can get a new handle?


you don't. take it into a Hyndai Dealership and have the handle repaired/replaced. The rear hatch panel/cover has to be removed (from inside the vehicle) to access the hatch latch and open the door.. from that point the handle can be replaced/repaired.

I just repaired a 2002 Aztek with a non working hatch. It was bad solonoid motors that were not releasing the latches.it is a fairly hard job to access the latches to release the hatch so you can get to the solonoids. You have toy crawl into the back of the vehicle and remove the bolts that hold the latch hooks. Once you have done this the glass top of the hatch will open. you can then use a screwdriver to reach down through the internal part of the latch and release it so you can access the bolts to disasemble the hatch to get to the solonoid motors. This is not a job a novice mechanic should atempt.It should be done by an experienced mechanic with the proper tools.
