82 CE Rear Hatch

I recently purchased a '82 CE.
I'm having the issue of opening the rear hatch. When I pull on the cable it doesn't move. It feels like the latches are locked. I tried strapping a ratchet strap to the cable handle and connected it to top door hinge. Gave it a "tightening" and nothing happened.
So before I break the cable or door hinge is there a trick to open the hatch?

Thank you,
