My hatch back clicks...

My hatch back clicks but won't open

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

No it's not a noise - the hatch back on my 2014 Kia Sorento will not open - it clicks like it wants to open but doesn't open.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sorento yourself? What have you tried so far?

No i just really want to know if there is an affordable way to fix it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

OK whats the mileage, this still could be under warranty

if I take it in to a Kia dealer how will I know which it is, it seems I always have to pay the higher price no matter what.

thats the good thing is that I will be here for anything you need, so when you go to the dealer and they look it over before you approve anything let me know what they say, you can send the diag report and ill make sure they are giving you the right price and diagnosis
