Hello all, anyone know how to unlock the rear cargo door from the inside so i can try to service it? i took off the interior panel but cant figure out what to do next. it is the side open gate, not the liftgate. Thanks in advance for any hints

Thank you so much for the quick reply JuneBug. The problem I have is the actuator wont unlock the door so when I move the rod from the inside or use the outside handle, it wont open due to the lock being engaged. i can usually figure out most car repairs I run into but this has me stumped.

The actuator is simply a little electric motor with gearbox attached to a rod. You should be able to push or pull that rod even if the actuator isn't working.
