Can't figure it out!

Asked by Jan 29, 2016 at 01:24 AM about the 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I think my 2002 pt cruiser has been hit in the rear,
which is making my "trunk" not open. The guy I
bought it from hit the back of the door with his
knee, pulled on the latch and it opened. That's the
last time anyone was able to open it. WHAT DO I
DO?! The latch is damaging the car now when you
pull it up to try and get it open. And there isn't a
way to get to it from the inside. Unless I'm missing
something?

I don't think your missing anything. Sounds like the latch is misaligned to the hatch/body due to the "hit". So it currently requires some "muscle" to open. Have a body shop or your mechanic look it over to repair so it opens normally.
