Pathfinder Rear Hatch Jammed

Hi all,
I have a 2001 Pathfinder and my hatch will not open. The window pops open, but the hatch won't. I'm tailgating in a couple of days and need to fix it. Can anyone please help me?
The rear hatch is mechanically connected to the rear window.
The hatch striker plate is adjustable, and maybe the cause of the hatch jam.
My hatch jammed tight & the problem was solved by pushing in at the center-bottom of hatch while trying to open.
It did pop up, ..... when ajdust the striker plate position by tension on the 4 nuts.
The other option is a sledge hammer & crow bar.
Here's an image of what's inside the Hatch.
