I still need help. Like I posted before, I have access from inside the vehicles of the actuator assembly, however unable to manually open the cargo door from within. If I can manually open, my plan is to replace the actuator. The cable seem to have been pulled to its max and it's not retracting. The lever on the actuator itself which is on down position maybe lock position is immovable. I tried to pry it up with a long screw driver unsuccessfully. Is there a way to manually open the cargo door from inside?

Nevermind I was able to open it after tugging and pulling and working a long screw driver in the assembly.

Thank for responding. Although you did not really answer my question and did not really help me. Is there a way I can get my money back?
