Land Rover Discovery Rear Cargo Door May Not Open

(44 reports)

Internal failure of the rear cargo door latch can cause the door to not open when using the outside door handle.

Rear door would not open inside or out. I fixed the problem. The outside handle was frozen inward.I took a screwdriver and on the side of the handle (not under the center, but on the side using friction) GENTLY got it back to the position that would open the door. It opened. I then sprayed WD 40 in a small hole above the latch on the side of the door (located by the child lock lever) It apears to work fine now. -
Rear cargo door would not open from inside or outside. The outside handle sticks where it still moves about a quarter inch but doesn't open. Simply take a small flathead screwdriver or butter knife and pry the handle back towards the door. Squeeze and it should open. Once open lubricate with PB Blaster or WD 40 in the handle area and the door catch. Works well after that. -
