Toyota Highlander

try pushing it even tighter then opening...a little to-and-fro action... can you crawl inside and remove the panel to access the latch? a can of wd-40 to soak the thing(from inside) it may lube the fibers enough to allow the latch to break free... i like a combo of wd-40 and to-and-fro....so good luck!!! also everyone should have a shop manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual(wiring diagrams and more detailed info) available in the reference section for FREE....make copies of the right sections, and fix it like a PRO!! good luck Dave :)
