Hi the fault is usually the button for opening the rear glass, this can be changed easily if it is not sezed to the wiper spindle D

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.

SOURCE: Rear Window Glass won't Release
what it seems to me is that your latch is stuck in a locked posiiton. If so, open the hatch itself to expose the screws in the inside panel. Once you have removed the screws the pry the bottom and sieds of the panel away from the body using a panel popper or flat screw driver. Then while applying upwards pressure to the panel from the bottom give the upper part of the panel a quick pop with the heel of your hand.. this should release the panel from the body, this will expose the latch itself. Using 10 millimeter socket, remove the latch from the body thus allowing you to remove it in a safe manner.

My wife's 2003 Yukon wouldn't lock the rear doors or hatch, but it would unlock. My problem was the lock relay was bad. There are two relays, one for lock and one for unlock. They are located in the fuse panel on the left side of the console. Open the drivers door and you will see a cover that pops off. Behind this are several fuses and relays. Consult your manual to see which is the lock and unlock relays. They are side by side on a 2003. They pull straight out. I replaced both and they were around $10 apiece at any auto store.

This is extremely common!
The micro-switch inside the glass hatch release is faulty, telling the door that it is partially depressed, thus shutting down opening for safety reasons.
You can verify this by opening the glass hatch (there is a access panel at the bottom of the door on the inside), removing the trim cover from behind the glass handle (two philips screws and one plastic push in fastener), then unplugging the glass handle.
Your door will now function normally, but without glass opening ability until you replace the handle.
The handle only takes a few 10mm nuts to remove and can be changed in a few minutes. It retails for around $35 from your dealer.
