I have a 2011 Subaru forester, and for about a day hatch wasn’t opening. When I crawled into the back I found a metal crochet needle sticking out of the place where the hatch door connects to the car (See in picture 3). https://imgur.com/a/FIyUYxH I was able to get the needle out but the top part broke off.
The actual unlocking mechanism is working, (see picture 2) the white plastic piece is sliding correctly. What the fuck do I do about this. I have already tried to stick a coat hanger in there to see if I could get anything loose but nothing worked. I also tried to drive fast over some speed bumps to see if I could get anything loose.
Edit: I didn’t take a picture when the needle was still in there, but it was jammed above the metal piece you can see in the picture.
Edit 2: The worst part about this is that I don’t even fucking crochet, and I have no idea where it came from.
Edit 3: The second worse part is I’m moving this week and I really need to be able to open the back.
Edit 4: oh my god I cant even fucking spell
