Default The back end.

Couple of things going on here. First is the oldest problem. The rear tailgate has never locked. Using the clicker you can lock the doors and "arm" the alarm. You can then go back and open the the rear of the PT. The reason I haven't messed with it is that the alarm will go off when the door is opened. So I've been wondering what can be done to fix that.

Newest problem is the handle for the rear hatch has about come off. Luckly the door is closed and seems to want to stay that way. I'm thinking of popping of the rear panel to see what is going on under there, but I am a little concerened that if I open the rear it will not close/lock again.

Do you think I could replace this with junk yard parts?

Junk yard parts? Sure if it's the same generation (01-05/06-10) cruiser.

I'm pretty sure the latch on the bottom can be adjusted a little forward and back by the screws that hold it in so try adjusting it to see if that makes it close securely.

You can open the hatch and take off the panels on the inside pretty easy to gain access to the rear handle. Everything on the inside of the PT just snaps on so with a little persuasion, the panels just pop right out.
