2000 Kia sportage rear hatch won't open with key - any suggestions?

I have tried turning the key, spraying WD-40, asking college kid I bought this from who doesn't have a clue how to open rear hatch. She broke the swing arm lever for spare tire - is there another way to get the door open?

How do you open the back door (no manual)


Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

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

Rear hatch door in ford windstar-mechanism came apart


My back hatch would not open but it appears the lock was sticking and the return spring to the handle is broken. We used the key to unlock the back door and then door opened. Then husband sprayed WD 40 in all the lock holes. Now once we open the door we have to push the handle back down as return spring is still missing but the door opens :) . My van is a 2002 Ford Windstar.

Has been sitting for months, dead battery. door locks are jammed


Take nozzle of WD-40, stick it in key slot as far as you can, lots of spray in there and keep spraying as you pull little red nozzle out slowly, and give it a little time, and try working key, first just slide it in & out a few times then keep trying to turn it. May take 2 or 3 sprayings to unseize things.

Rear hatch wont open


Spray WD-40 or similar lube in key slot, using red tube from can & insert it as far in the key slot as you can, and spray it often & lots, it may take quite a few times, or it may not release at all, but keep working the key in & out and try to turn as well as keep trying your power lock & remote. Get as much spray as you can up inside the handle area too especially at both ends. It's a hit & miss but you may get lucky. If you do get it open, you need to remove the inside panel & get to all the linkages, especially pivot points & spray them down good to unseize them, then after, coat them well with white lithium grease.
