How to fix hatch on a 2002 kia sportage that wont open


When you closed the hatch the release lever got hung behind the lock assembly. get a flashlight and long screwdriver to look behind the driver side of the spare tire to see the small lever that will move while you have someone else pull the release handle. you will need to pry it back to the othr side of the latch plate so that when you pull the release handle the back rack will unlock.

Hello, we bought a kia sportage 2001 and we have no idea how to open the hatchback...I know it sounds silly but we can't open it. thanks


I believe (if this is the tail gate style) you need to insert the key and turn it so that the window goes down then open it from the inside. Toyota 4Runners are the same way. keep me posted.

2002 Kia sportage spare tire swing arm won't release?


The cable on the KIa is outside near the sapre tire and gets rusted and corroded easily. Also there is a nut which holds the cable securely in a holder so that when you pull on the cable the inside and not the outside of the cable moves. Use WD-40 on the cable, make sure that the cable is secure in the holder and tighten the nut that holds the cable to the frame - the nut is located just below the pull handle, on the outside of the cable itself.
