SOURCE: 2000 Toyota Sienna tailgate door will not open/broken handle

I hope I can help, I had the same problem on my 2001. I called the dealership and they said 375.00 + parts to fix. Being mechanically inclined I decidet to try it myself. Please understand, this is not exact, but is a pretty good guide. To open from the outside, make sure doors are unlocked(mine relocked after a minute or so) place a screwdriver, long and thin, into the slot that the handle passes through the door on the right side. Raise the handle of the driver, and you should be pressing down on a cable that operates the latch. the door should release. If you cant do that, from the inside, remove the two side trim pieces. Then remove the inner door panel, One screw under plastic cap on handle, one under cap on strap... and pop off all plastic buttons(hidden) between the door and cover, a 1" putty knife will work for this. You will see the cable that used to connect to the handle. Remove the cable by pulling it through the slot(apparent when you get to it) and now remove the two screws that hold the handle on. Also, you have to remove a screw from the passengers side of the cover plate over the handle. the plate will slide(not sure which way now), and it will come off. replace the handle and etc..... inreverse.. Took me 25 minutes, start to finish. Further questions, let me know. remember, mine was 2001 Sienna.

SOURCE: cannot open my tailgate

I am sure you have found your solution by now... but just in case: My wife did the same thing.. you can reach in on the right side and push down on the rod to open. There are aftermarket handles available on ebay and other sources for around $35. I am currently searching install instructions as I just got mine in today.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Ranger Exterior Tailgate Handle Broken

There should be an access panel on the bed side of the tail gate. If you have a liner installed on the tail gate you will need to remove it to gain access to the panel. Panel is probably held on with torx screws but you may get lucky and have regular bolts. just remove panel and the lock rods are held to the handle with little clips, just pop them off and remove the nuts that hold the handle assembly onto the tailgate, install is just the revers order.

How to repair a 1997 Nissan pathfinder tailgate that will not open


If you can get to the back side of the tailgate handle, you will probably find a broken plastic part that would normally pull the latch at either both or one side. It seems to be a design defect, or enough corrosion in the latch to strain these plastic parts.

Replace tailgate handle 2002 avalanche


If it's similar to a Silverado, the tailgate handle consists of a bezel (plastic cover) and a Red and Green plastic clip that break very easily. Take the bezel off (just pull carefully from the tailgate, careful not to break the plastic clips) look for 2 rods, again 1 connects to a red clip, the other to a Green, replace the broken one, or a cheap/temporary fix is to use a plastic zip tie at the connection. Snap the bezel back in.

My tailgate won't open. It's jammed. I don't know how to get it to release so I can see what's wrong.


You will need a long flat blade screwdriver. From inside the bed of the truck look between the bedside and the tailgate and you can see the latch. take the screwdriver and gently ,but it will take some force, and pry the latch from the striker plate until it releases. If you push the tailgate open just a little on that side the latch will stay released. An extra hand comes in handy for this. Then do the same to the other side and you have an open tail gate. On the outside if you gently pry the lower part of the cover that surrounds the handle the bottom comes loose and then gently pull the top down and work it out of the opening. This is a little tricky but be patient and it will come out. If you break it it is about a 10 dollar part. There will be 2 rods in two plastic clips where your handle is. The clips lock over the rods. Flip the clip up and the rod will slide out of the clip. You most likely have a broken clip or a rusty handle. WD-40 works wonders.
