Default Re: that bottom back door latch

the rubber plug gives you an eyeball look in there, cant do nothing with it tho. It does look like you can remove the plastic tho. Once the plastic is out you can get to the latch. Prolly should remove the front seat so you have lots of room to work on it.

Spray lots of wd40 or some type of penetrating fluid . Get your hand in there where the link meets the latch , start working it keep using more wd40 keep working it , it'll eventually pop loose , Thats all I usually do . But then again Ive serviced thousands of latches . Its very rare ,unless its crunched that I cant free it . After you get it open take out the latch set it in a bucket of tranny fluid over nite . Take it out clean it up work the parts make sure it all free again , put it back in , grease er up . Works 99.9% of the time .

UPDATE I cut the striker with a hacksaw blade for 3 hours to get the door open, but since the top latch still works I'm not going to get a new bottom one for awhile or maybe I wont ever after all that .
