rear hatch outer handle, or if the part your'e talking about is inside the door its called a rear hatch doorlatch...hey it rhymes!
There's an excellent discussion of this problem at this thread: http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic203428.htm The quick answer is that you remove the inside handle and strap, pull off the vinyl cover and replace the handle. A new handle will cost you ~$70 at a Toyota dealer, but it's still much cheaper than paying that same dealer ~$400 to do it for you.
http://www.findonefindall.com/toyota-sienna/siennareardoor.htm Works like a charm. I spent $497.00 getting my 1999 Sienna handle fixed at the dealer, less than 2 yrs later it broke again. This fix took less than 30 mins and cost pennies.
mine is a 2WD model, but if it's the same, have a look on passenger side access panel immediately inside rear hatch.
You can get a diagram for your 2000 Dodge Caravan rear door hatch handle and most Dodge dealerships. Your local library will have Dodge service manuals with the diagram.
........it is on the driver side at the the very back, just behind the 3rd. row seats. You will see a "hatch" on the sidewall......driver side.
Tail lights are replaced by removing the entire rear plasic cover to the back hatch.
Open hatch and remove strap and handle. Remove rear panel attached to hatch by popping off of hatch. Be careful because the clips are not strong. Use bulb 921 @ 18W.
Yes, it is the handle on the outside of the hatch.
my hatch handle is broke
Our mechanic had to climb through the inside of the car, into the trunk area and open it by removing the hatch cover. That's the only way he could replace the latch.
use the handle....
where is the botton to open back door on 2003 toyota sequoia
Let a hen handle it.
No. My handle broke during the winter when it was cold and icy. I went to pull the handle to load groceries in and the handle snapped. As far as I know there is no other way to open other than the handle. Which I don't know why and if I'd known this when I bought the vehicle, I wouldn't have bought it. Isn't it a safety issue? Looks like I will have to replace the handle and after much research it appears to be very expensive.
Yes, it should fit perfectly.
remove the inside trim or cut a hole to reach the mechanism and replace the inside trim.
Even the manual is vague here. You need to look under the chrome trim where the main hatch lever is. Off to the far right is a handle which, if you get down and look, appears to be a vent or something. Put your fingers in and pull up, this will release the hatch... then pull up on the small handle on the hatch itself.
1. Open the hatch and stand under it. 2. Remove pull handle from the inside of the hatch (2 screws under pop panels). 3. Starting in the lower corners, gently pry the entire interior panel from the hatch, and leave it hanging from the wiper area near the glass. 4. Grasp the bulb housing and twist to the left while pressing inward. 5. Replace with a 1156 bulb.
I replaced mine on my '01 HL...it is done from inside. Open the hatch and pop the moulded plastic from the inside of the rear hatch to gain access to the bulb. I first attempted to change it from the outside..WRONG busted the light and had to buy new for $100....
How to replace a brake light on a nissan Tiida hatch back.
I have to pull a fuse to get mine to work and then replace it. It only works once, so every time I want in the hatch, I have to open the hood, open the fuse box, remove and then replace the fuse. I can then open the hatch once.
Open the rear hatch, there is a plastic panel that is at the top of the hatch which is long and thin.. It snaps out and the light is behind it. Careful though, the clips break.. I took it Toyota, I couldn't figure it out..
TRY THIS BEFORE YOU SPEND ANY $$$$$.. PULL UP ON THE HATCH HANDLE AND PUSH IN ON THE HATCH WHILE PULLING THE HANDLE.. WE HAVE ONE THAT DOES IT AND TALKED TO MANY WHO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM..IT LET SOME OF THE PRESSURE OFF THAT HAS BILT UP ON THE IN SIDE OF THE JEEP..GOOD LUCK...
