What it is! some how your spare tire Carriage is out of alignment or bend or hanging on the lock mechanism You will need three hands one to lift the carriage and then pull the wire to open the latch ,that should take care of it. while you are at it tighten the bolts that hold the carriage.
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...get the vehicle back to the shop that worked on it....Sounds to me like one or more of the calipers won't release it's grip when you release the brake pedal or the master cylinder is locked...Think about it...it's like driving with your foot on the brake pedal....or maybe your power brake booster...anyway...Get it back to the shop that worked on it and bring your receipts for all the work done...Let me know what happens...I hope this was helpful...PEACE........
Start by removing spare tire spay penetrating oil on to latch mechanism under lower bar as it should be more assessable the pull cable hooks to a slide latch give an hour or so for fluid to work if penetrating oil does not free up latch try prying the slide to the direction of pull wiith a mechanics pry bar or long large flat tip screw driver if not remove latch mechanism from carrier bar and repair or replace.
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.
