Default Cargo Hatch button not working

The rear hatch button on my wife's Cruiser stopped working.

When I went to the dealer they quoted an over 300$ price to open it up and replace it. Any ideas on an easier (cheaper!) solution that I can do???


Oh she has a 2006 Black GT!

You'll have to crawl into the back and pry the panel off the door, which isn't easy while the door is closed, and work the mechanism by hand to get the hatch open. Once it's open you can replace the button yourself.

I should have mentioned that the key can open the hatch. Just the same way as in the olde days.

the release does not work
