I have a 2005 ford expedition. My rear hatch door will not open. I do not know if the locking mechanism is out or what but I need to fix my rear left light and can't because I can't open the door to get to it. How do I manually open the door?

The only thing you can do is remove the inner door panel and check to see if the linkage is broken or has come loose.

Let me know what you find. Also, once you open it up, you can manually release the latch.

How do I remove the door panel? Does it just pop off?

There should be a few screws and clips between the door panel and the door.
