How do you open a stuck rear hatch on a 1998 nissan pathfinder the latch will partially release but hatch will not open


If you can get a screw driver to try to push the latch with the screw driver. It should open. Once you have it open you need to spray it really good with WD-40. Or take it off and replace it with a new one.

AWD went out in my 1998 Subaru Forester?


This recently happened to my 98 Subaru Legacy Outback.
My problem is in the rear differential. May be the same for you.
When making a turn, the car sounds like a Star Wars T.I.E. Fighter. The outside wheel is not turning fast enough to keep up with the inside wheel or vice versa. AWD is disengaged and car is currently operating on Front WD. I was told this is fine to drive this way.

'99 subaru legacy wagon rear hatch won't unlock


before you pull stuff, go to the back of the car. Instead of pulling the latch (away from the car and towards you) to open the hatch, push the lever in the other direction (towards the car, away from you).

i had this happen to me and read about it online, worked totally fine. It's just stuck towards you and not "sitting" correctly. Hope it works!

The hood of my 99 subaru legacy outback won't shut all the way


Had the same problem... hosed the latch down with WD40 and problem solved. I think salt and road grit build up on the latch. Same thing with the rear hatch release.

1998 Subaru Legacy Hatch no longer opens


Most of the time these rivits break when you pull them out but sometime you get lucky. They can be bought from subaru at a cheap pruice tag. Just slip a butter knife or something of the sort under the head and pry up. Good Luck. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer.

Hatch door not opening & inside window moisture


pull the rear interior cover from the door and check to see if the latch rod clips are broken or misadjusted. the moisture could be a result of a failed heater core, poor defroster operation (A/C not working, vent door, or blower motor), or the window seal could be defective.
