Took inside panel off of rear hatch. Disconnected mechanism rods. Moved the rod by hand. Mechanism seems to be moving, can feel spring tension. Also sprayed with lubricant/rust buster and let set for a day. Still didn't help. Should I enlarge the small access hole to get a better look or is there a better way to open the door. Thank-you
The rear hatch is closed. I can't open it. I've taken the inside panel off. Unhooked the latch rods and tried to move them by hand. I feel it engage the spring assembly when I push the rod down. That didn't unlatch door. I sprayed lubricant/rust blaster on the latch mechanism. Let it set for a day, but that didn't help either. I can just barely see through an access hole. Should I enlarge the hole to gain access or is there a better way?
