Rear access panel the knob will not turn from unlock to lock
Knob will not turn from unlock to lock and there was a rattle inside so I popped it open and there is a metal piece that I have no idea where it goes. It is about 4" long and the ends are bent up-the whole thing is thin ?1/4". If I can find out where this metal piece goes I can put it back together and get the rear panel on my printer. someone please tell me they know what I am talking about. HP tech support was clueless.

page 14 of your owners manual shows how to lock unlock the child proof setup on door -----open door and by latch will see the the lock move to unlock position ! CAUTION LOCKING WITH REAR DOOR CHILDPROTECTORS Turn the lock knob to the "LOCK" position as shown on the label. This feature allows you to lock a rear door so it can be opened from the outside only, not from inside. We recommend using this feature.... the link is a copy of your owners manual 1996 Toyota Camry Owners Manual
had this problem myself.... you gotta go in through the back and take the plastic/vinal cover off the rear door and look for the lock from the inside..... unlock it .... open the door and then you can repair and lube the mechanism while standing outside like a human being. its not very hard to do.. just take your time and don't force anything.
Be sure the outside knob is unlocked before closing the door.
Schlage locks do not lock the inside knob or lever. After releasing the turn button, also turn the inside lever or knob, then check the outside knob.
What model of lock is this?
Bad lock actuator: (NOTE: If your hatch is locked)
First remove rear panel- pull the plastic panel at the top center, until (2)clips pop off, then pop (2) more clips at the mid-center. Stick your arm down until you reach the lock, with your fingers, feel for the squishy plastic( inside is the bar that goes up to unlock), it is attached to the lever to unlock. Pull up the lever until you can open the hatch. There are four more clips at the top sides and middle sides, and four plastic screws at the bottom which is only accessible when the hatch is opened.
The lock is only sold as an assembly at $100.
Part Number #9L8Z-7843150 B
If the door wouldn't close how did you close it to lock it and have to exit out the passage side door? Anyway if the door is open like you said and it's locked you can easily access the locking mechanism without removing the side panel. It's on the side of the door, not the inside and not the outside, but the thin strip visible only when you open the door. There will be two metal pieces that clasp together. You can separate them manually, this will unlock the door.
If the knobs don't come up enough to remove (unscrew) them when unlocking with a key, you will need to remove the door panels to access them. take out the screw in the arm rest, take off the window crank and gently pop the plastic fasteners around the edges straight out, them pull door panel up and away. this should expose the knobs enough to remove, then replace the door panel and put in the new ones... Hope this helps...;-)
I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C 3.8 liter like yours and it sounds
like you are having the same the same problem I had.
Every time you hit the door unlock or lock button, it made a loud
buzz like you just missed a question on a game show. ;-)
It turned out the problem was the rear lift gate lock actuator. The part costs
about $40 from the dealer if I can recall correctly.
The repair involves: 1st removing the middle and rear seats to get
access from the inside to the rear gate
(obviously you will have to remove the seats from the side doors
since the rear gate won't open yet)
Remove the plastic inside rear gate panel and molding (phillips screws)
Once you remove the panel, you may see a way to manually
open the rear gate. As I recall, I think there was a access opening
covered from the inside with a black weather/insulation tape.
Carefully removing this out of the way gave access to a way to
manually open the gate, making the rest of the work easy.
Remove the electrical connector and the mounting bolts
to remove from the actuator. It is attached to the inside
rear gate with 2 or 3 bolts (10 mm?)
Remove the old one and replace the part, then put it all back
together, make sure you reconnect the electrical connector
