There is no apparent way to open the rear hatch on my 2013 Ford Explorer from the inside.

Asked by Aug 25, 2015 at 03:13 AM about the 2013 Ford Explorer Limited 4WD

Question type: General

There is a little panel at the bottom inside of the hatch in the location of where the  latching mechanism is that looks like a punch-out panel. Could it be that there is a manual releasing handle or something behind that for emergencies or owner optional use?

Try to open it if you can and see if that's the case..

That is an access panel to replace the siezed mechanism
