My rear hatch will not open using the key or electric releases and key turns. The key turns and the electric hatch release motor working. I have an ’87 any suggestions?

So it is jammed somehow?
When was the last time it worked?

I'll try those suggestions. Do you know the exact location to drill the 1/4 hole?

The hatch is heavy. I would be turning the key and jerking the hatch up and down lots first.

I'll try that again. Only problem is I have the adjustable wing that keeps poping out. Do you think lubricating key hole help?

It can't hurt.
I would also climb inside, remove the back cover and watch while someone else tries. you might see what is hanging it up. Take a screw driver with you to pry at the release cam.

I finally got the hatch open using a screw driver prying the plastic cam. I found the upper latch has stress marks. Also the plastic cam does not move. My repair manual does not show how to remove the latch from the alarm wiring. Does anyone have suggestion? Is it normal for the aluminum upper latch to crack? Thanks for all the help. Ariel Trajano
