It could be a little pin in the mechanism that hase come lose. Take away the plastic panel inside the vehicle. The top part snaps lose. The bottom part has six screws. Remove these and the light in the door. Snap lose the bottom part. Now you can see the mechanism and there is a little lever that is green in the bottom. It is obvious how it fits. It is threaded but I do not think there should be a nut on it.

Get a replacement handle to install once you get it open, push hard against the bottom edge of the hatch right below the handle and then use the handle to open it, but once you get it open it is a pain in the **** to replace the handle

There is a small access panel in the middle of the door. This will give you access to the door latch.

How can I change the rear brake lights on my 2004 Dodge Durango if the back hatch won't open


That might get a little dicey. This sounds like a very good time to disassemble the interior panel on that back hatch and get it to open, even if only from the inside.

Dodge rear hatch


This is a common issue with this make and model. From the inside of the cab, you can loosen the plastic trim on the hatch at the bottom and reach in and locate the rod that connects to the actuator. You should be able to pull that and open the hatch.

My 2006 dodge durango rear hatch door will not open, I am looking for a manual way to open the rear hatch? and a solution to this problem. also looking for a detailed manual for the fuse box.as I am...


I own a 04 durango and the door lock actuator froze up internally and I could not open the rear hatch. After hours of research on my computer nothing seemed to fix the problem. I eventually figured it out myself. You must pull the screws out of the molding on the inside of the rear door. You can now pull the molding toward you and look down at the actuator and latch. You can pull on the molding quite a bit if necessary. I never broke mine and I was pretty agressive with it. Now, on top of the whole mechanism is the lock actuator. There should be a white plastic lever sticking out towards the driver side. If you can slide it from back to forward "forward is front of vehicle", the lock should be working. If not your door is not unlocking. My durango had 3 Torx screws on top of the actuator. Remove them. This will take the actuator off of the latch. Now that the actuator is not binding or holding the lock from moving, again try to move the white plastic lever towards front of vehicle. It should click and you should be able to open the door.
