I see others have succeeded in getting a hatchback open by holding the handle forward and unlocking with the key..

However, I have to use a remote to open all door locks except the driver door ( who designed that?!) (better yet, I bought that?!)

No 'click' sounds from the mechanism, and I can pull the hatch handle, but nothing engages.

If I have to remove the panel from inside, any tips would be greatly appreciated, I have the basic tool box.

Thanks in advance!!
