I have a 1999 Ford Explorer and I had to break the lock on my hatchback because I locked my keys in the car and now it won't open. Is there an easy way to take the molding off of the hatchback?

Not really. With the hatch closed you cannot remove the inside panel without damaging it. A locksmith may be of assistance.
