Greetings all, My Girlfriend has a 2004 Explorer XLT, and the hatch won't open. She got her coat sleeve stuck in the bottom of the hatch, and now it won't budge. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!

If the coat is not actually tangled in the latch, try putting inward pressure on the hatch, while you work the handle.
Like maybe a lot of pressure, two people pushing the door in really hard, especially where the fabric is,while someone works the latch.
