SOURCE: I HAVE A 1996 MERCURY

The handle may be stuck in the open position due to rust. Try to push back the handle and play (open/close/open) with the lock control. The same thing will eventually happen to the sliding door, and the culprit is the inside handle, stuck in the open position, preventing the door to close completely. Good luck.

SOURCE: trunk/hatch will not open. handle seems loose.

2000 ford explorer back hatch handle loose door locked The linkage on the back hatch came unfastened and the handle was loose. Ford uses plastic fastener clips over perfectly good threads to hold this together. The outdoor plastic handle is only conected to the car with two aluminum ribets. One was already missing on mine. But if you just want to open the door, you can rip the handle off and pull it out. hopefully you won't crack the plastic. You can see the linkage screw hanging as you look up through the left hole. Grab it with a plyers and apply a steady force down. This will open the hatch. I just rigged up a different handle and put a nut on the treads to hold it together. This can all be done without tearing appart the interier and may only take 20 minutes. I used a rope and handle from the garage opener, a medium size washer and a nut. First make a small loop, with a small hole to slide over the linkage screw, then the washer, then the nut. Slide the other end of rope through the handle, move the handle very close to the vehicle and tie the not close. Trim the rope and wala ... the hatch works. Or you can pay $300.00+ to have it fixed with the clip.

How can I remove the rear latch from the hatch door?


Solution: you need the valet key and there should be a way to open it from the inside -jeff ps please rate , i have had the same problem many times with my mercury villager. one thing i have found to work on more than one occasion is while it is closed, push the back hatch as if you were shutting it. hit the lock button ( either on remote or inside of van ). then push the handle out on the hatch to make sure it will catch all the way. unlock the doors and pull on the handle, the hatch should open with no problem. , if it is electronic check the fuses first. if not electric spray with WD-40 in key hole and around button

The moveable glass on the hatch opens when you turn the lock with the key clockwise I think. Counterclocwise unlocks the hatch. There was a sticker on the lock when new, probably wore off.

My back hatch door doen't want to open


You need to climb in the back and remove the plastic panel from the hatch to access the lock. There may be a small access door over the locking mechanism to help you avoid removing the whole thing. Could be dirty and sticky and fixable with a bit of graphite lube.

Here's the part I think people are wanting to know-- it's what I was looking for and unable to find. The 'Trick' to removing that panel! :)

Here's what you need to know:

There are 3 clips holding the panel in place along the long edge nearest the window (top)-- one about an inch in on each end and one in the center. There are 3 more 'hinges' on the panel's long edge nearest the bumper (bottom) when the door is closed. There are no clips on the short sides.

To open the panel, simply use a utility knife to slide behind the panel on either short side near the 'top' and pry slightly. It may be good to have a flathead screwdriver to slip behind the panel and slowly pry along the top edge (nearest the window still!). Once you have those three clips loose, the panel will fold down like an oven door and the bottom 3 'hinges' will lift right out.

Took about 5 minutes to complete the lamp changes once I got in there! Oh, and I hope you have small hands or thin pliers! Not much room in there!
