SOURCE: trying to remove a jacobs key less chuck 500

It twists off counter clock wise. The best way I have found to remove the chuck is to stick a screw driver into the chuck, tighten the chuck, hold the screw driver in some type of vise and run it all full speed in reverse

Rear door latch is broke

I had to do this, too... Mine cost me $70 at the local dealer (they even got it in the same stock paint color). Tip: buy a few of the inexpensive replacement plastic pins for your inner panel when you buy the handle housing, as they tend to break easily. You can pop the old pins by sticking a narrow straight screwdriver or a butterknife under the panel near them and twisting... once it's off, the screws for the old handle housing are fairly easy to spot (just remember where the housing bolts on from the exterior are located). Now that those are off, realize that the thing is probably hanging from your trunk by the wires connecting the license plate lights and the handle, itself They can be removed from the old, broken housing with a phillips #2 (normal size) screwdriver, and then the wires have a quick-disconnect so that you can pop the lights and the handle off w/o cutting the wires. Pop them off, slide the wires through your new handle housing, and screw them back on. then slide the handle housing into position (lining up the screws that are molded into the housing with the adjacent holes). You'll have to kind of hold it in place as you raise the trunk hatch to full open position, but once it's up, gravity is your friend. Use the screws that were holding the parts from the broken housing to re-affix the new one, and you're done.
