SOURCE: 2003 toyota sequoia rear door latch broken

First, take off the license plate2_bing.gif.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.

Hatchback door handle broken on 2002 Toyota Sequoia. How do I open door?


You need to get inside the vehicle and remove the trim around the top of the window, It is 3 pieces. You also need to remove the plastic door panel. To do that you need to remove the internal handle and any other items attached to the door/panel. the internal handle snapped opened by a screw driver then a socket needs to be used to take the bolt out of the handle. When this is done I took a hooked tool like a radiator hose tool and slipped it at around the edges to pull the plastic plugs out until the cover pulls free from the bottom. Make sure you save all of them if any fall off of the cover. Then you slide it up out of the window crack to remove it. You may find a video of all of this if you search for it with your year of vehicle or ones around the same year. You can then remove the metal center cover its about 8 bolts and a few plastic snaps. Once you open the back you will find the latch broke or a cable came loose. I have had both happen. If the latch is broken buy the metal one for the Tundra it will last the life of the vehicle (the one for the Sequoia is plastic on most years?). You can also buy the cable and the bottom latch on line I would replace all 3 and you should be good for 5 to 10 years again. I did the door handle then the latch and cable later. Let me know if you get stuck anywhere.

Lift gate will not open


If you can hear the lock and unlocking of the mechanism in the rear door latch with the key fob and the electric button on the side doors, but the outside handle will not open the rear door, then the handle has broken off from the inside. The plastic handles can now be replaced with stronger metal ones. Several other possibilites, including cables and actuator problems. Sequoia owners have had a lot of problems with this. Good luck, i hope this helps.

2003 rear door latch broken how do I get the panel open


if the door is shut, it is a real doozy but i have done it. you have to pry the inner panel off the door using hook tools and small, crowbar shaped tack pullers....kinda like a mini wonder bar. once the panel is off, you have to fish around inside the door and pull the cable on the latch by hand.

Do0r handle broken on passenger side 2002 toyota sequioa


You need to remove the large yellow clip that hold the handle to the rod that goes down to the door latch assembly. Also, if the key lock is in the handle, you need to remove the clip that hooks the key cylinder to the door latch assembly.
