How to fix hatch on a 2002 kia sportage that wont open


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.

How do I open swing bar with tire on 1998 sportage? Haven't had any luck opening it and car repair didn't know either, can't get in rear of car since I got it last year, help! I tried pulling on long metal...


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.

I can't get the spare tire out of the rack? 2004 yukon


  • Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the spare tire to the ground. Continue to rotate the shaft until the spare tire can be pulled out from under the vehicle and removed. If the spare tire does not lower to the ground, the secondary latch is engaged causing the tire not to lower.
  • If the secondary latch is engaged and the cable end is visible, perform the following procedure: 3.1. Tighten the cable by rotating the hoist shaft clockwise until you hear 2 clicks or feel it skip twice. You cannot overtighten the cable. 3.2. Loosen the cable by rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise 3 or 4 turns. 3.3. If the spare tire can be lowered, repeat steps 1 and 2 to see if the spare tire can be removed. 3.4. If the spare tire cannot be lowered, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable is exposed. 3.5. Raise and support the vehicle. 3.6. Place a transmission jack, or equivalent, under the spare tire. 3.7. Position the center of the transmission jack under the secondary latch release button at the center of the spare tire. Arrange the arms of the transmission jack so they will support the tire after it has been released. 3.8. Raise the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is firmly held in place, releasing the secondary latch. 3.9. Lower the tire. If the spare tire is hanging by the cable, rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until the tire is low enough to remove.

    The cable for the spare tire on my 2006 1500 works fine (it's all the way down) but the retainer did not lower at all so I cannot pick up the spare tire. Can anyone help? Thanks


    1. Rotate the hoist shaft counterclockwise until approximately 15 cm (6 in) of cable (1) is exposed.
    2. While holding the latch pin (3), fully depress the latch button (2) and release the secondary latch from the hoist assembly. Some side-to-side and/or up-and-down movement may be necessary to disengage the latch mechanism.
    3. Continue rotating the hoist shaft counterclockwise in order to lower the hoist the rest of the way.
    4. If this does not release the secondary latch, the spare tire hoist will need to be replaced. See the following procedure.
    Important: If the spare tire hoist has been fully raised without a spare tire in place, the secondary latch mechanism may have become engaged. If this has occurred the hoist will not lower and the following steps will need to be followed:
