Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab
I have a 97 F150 and the tailgate will not open from the handle. I opened the panel on the back and open it and everything looks fine. I am looking at the lock mechanism. In one posistion, the handle moves but the rods do not. In the other position. The handle tries to move but is too hard. I assume the 2nd position is the locked position, so why does my handle not open? Does anyone have a diagram? I do better with pictures... Thanks, Brian
