There is a small plate on the tailgate door about center and a little to the right about2x3 inches. remove it and with your finger reach in through the insulation and you will feel a lever. that is the manual release. if it will not move the control motor is broken in the locked position. To change that you need to remove the panel on the door and the insulation mat covering it. It will cost about 90.00 bucks from jeep

I don't have a REAL solution....but I have the same problem....sometimes it opens and sometimes it doesn't. So far the best solution is a skinny 7 year old grandson who loves to climb into the back and hand up the goods!!

LOL!

How to open rear hatch on 2006 Ford Freestyle without handle


If it has an electric release or a cable release you will need to open it from the inside by use of the lever (cable) or button (electric) and the vehicle handbook will provide location details. If the releases do not work the fuse(s) might be blown or the cable broken near the handle.

If all has been tried in the car to no avail it will be necessary to open the tailgate by diverse means - in the case of an electric release it is common for the wiring to break where it passes from the vehicle roof into the tailgate and in the hope that is the fault it will be necessary to remove whatever trim is going to give access to either the electric release or the wires nearby and then provide it with a 12 volt supply and hope that opens the tailgate because if it doesn't it will mean manually manipulating the lock - not often easy for the inexperienced.

The cable of the cable release and the release itself is fortunately much more accessible as they are body equipment and not tailgate equipment.

How do I release my fuel flap on my 2008 zafira please


Open tailgate, pull back trim/look in cubbyhole space on fuel filler side of the car. Locate motor and manually activate lock plunger.

Once you have the trim off you can see the motor - look for the rod thats poking into the fuel flap and just move it with a pair of thin nosed pliers - if you then disconnect the plug it won't re lock when you lock the car - have you checked all the fuses as for the central locking to stop it has to be a fuse.

The rear glass on my 2000 chevy blazer won't release to open it what can i do to solve the problem?


there's a plastic actuator inside the tailgate that probably broke or at least came loose. You have to crawl into the back and release it. I ended up having to cut a little piece of carpet in the middle on the top of the tailgate area. Right where it fastens. You can manually release the glass with a screwdriver at that point. To replace the actuator, you need to take off the entire tailgate trim and metal underneath that to get to it. It sounds like a pain but trust me, not having the back glass be able to open or the tailgate area is much worse. It takes about 45 minutes to fix. The actuators are less than $10

Tailgate jamed shut


under the carpet installed on the tailgate door, there is a hole. put a screw driver in it and manually flip the latch open, to start.
yjen take the door panel off, one screw with the interiro handle, and pull the rest off,
watch the auto release slidw side to side, you will find a broken piece here, I made an extension piece with a plastic hook and screw, works fine for over a year, lube all latch parts with wd 30 once opened.

Tailgate latch will not lock when closed


There are two Possibilites with this issue ... Either the latches are bound or rusted and can be lubricated with lithium grease after cleaning or the plastic retaining clips may have broken inside your tailgate. To locate these, remove the three bolts holding in the latch assembly and inspect the clips attached to the two control rods that will latch/release your tailgate. I have found spraying white litium grease every three months into the latches of my tailgate has eliminated the same problem on my truck.
