If you can get a screw driver to try to push the latch with the screw driver. It should open. Once you have it open you need to spray it really good with WD-40. Or take it off and replace it with a new one.

2008 nissan pathfinder rear hatch does not open. itis electric


Do you hear it make noise but not unlatch? Check the owners manual to see if there is a bypass to unlatch it when this happens, most cars have a plug you remove to trip the latch.

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.

Back window is stuck


First be sure the auto-lock is not on and that the entire liftgate can be opened.

Look for the small rubber button above and on the right side of the license plate. Try pushing that button to see if the rear window hatch pops.

If these efforts don't work, check the fuse associated with the "luggage compartment lid release switch"... it's a 20 amp fuse possibly located in slot 22.

A last resort would be removing the interior panel of the liftgate and locating the latch release for the hatch. You can find a schematic of the rear liftgate in an Internet search. Good luck!

How to open the glass on the rear door of a 2005 nissan pathfinder


Even the manual is vague here. You need to look under the chrome trim where the main hatch lever is. Off to the far right is a handle which, if you get down and look, appears to be a vent or something. Put your fingers in and pull up, this will release the hatch... then pull up on the small handle on the hatch itself.

Why 05 pathfinder bonnet wont open


Cable has probably broken or mortally bound-up. Does the release know pull out at all. If not, it's bound-up/locked-up. The latch itself may be the problem.

My rear hatch will not open on my 1998 jeep grand cherokee


Your Grand Cherokee has a small pop off panel on the inside of the rear hatch trim...after carefully removing this panel reach inside the opening and you will find a release cable...pull on this cable and the hatch latch should release...then try lubricating the latch at all contact points, and the mechanism itself...if the latch does not release the next try, then you will need to replace this latch...this is a dealer or salvage yard part...your least costly replacement will be through the salvage yard market...some salvage yards are now on-line, and will ship the part to you. Hope this helps.

Just got a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder in relatively good shape. How do I open the rear hatch/tailgate?


Insert your key into the lock and turn the key left to open the hatch, or right to open the window. There is also a small lever by the door latch that locks the hatch when you close it so you don't have to use the key.

Back hatch won't open


Hi: Under your hood in the power distribution box is a 3A fuse, if blow your door locks and rear wiper motor won't work, replace fuse. To manually open door ... take a pick or fine longer screw driver and insert it through the carpet liner on the interior back door (center, top of carpet you will find a indent under the carpet.) move pick to release the door latch mechanism.
