RELEASE MECHANISM FOR HATCH

2004 Hyundai Tiburon

Interior problem
2004 Hyundai Tiburon 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 111000 miles

Does anyone have any idea how to get the hatch open on a tiburon when the release mechanism seems to be broken. My electric switch works the upper part of the locking mechanism of the hatch but does not release. The same with the key. I have spent hours squashed in the hatch trying different things to get it open and nothing has worked. Can not get to the mechanism without opening the hatch (fasteners are in the hidden areas to remove panels) and can't figure out how to trigger the latch from inside or outside the car.

I have the exact same problem with my 2006 Tiburon. The hatch release in the driver side door works fine and the key turns in the trunk itself but it never releases.

Anyone have any feedback on how to get it open?
