SOURCE: broken tailgate latch

Remove the paneling from inside. Than you can use a flathead screwdriver to pry the latch rod and latch enough to pop open the door.

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.

L want to completely remove the tailgate of a 1998 Chevrolet S10 pickup.


Really bad idea. This will cost you lower fuel mileage, danger of cargo loss. Mythbusters have run tests proving that the aero effects with the tailgate up form a cushion of air in the bed which reduces drag. None of my business I know.

Broken tailgate latch


UHOH, might try a bent butter knife or other bent metal and slip it in the crack between the tailgate and the side panel on the side that the rod from the handle came off on, but if it came off both sides you'll have to work both latch at the same time which will require the help of a buddy unless your pretty acrobatic. You have to push in the catch or catches that are not retracting to unlatch the tailgate. Good luck if all else fails you'll need to take it to a body shop. Some trucks you can get to the rods to the latches trough the hole where the handle mounts with some needle nose and pull the rods if they came loose at the middle.

remove the bolts from the forward side of the tailgate but be sure to keep control of the handel itself to give you access to the rods to pull the locks inward to release........Hope this helps.

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.

The tailgate latch on our 2006 Chevy truck is in the open positio


there are little metal rods that connect to the handle of the tailgate, just like the rods that connect your door handles to the door hinges and lock mechanism. just pop off the plastic cover over the tailgate handle and check and see if the rods are still connected to the handle.

Tailgate on teh 2001 Chevy Siverado will not open,


Remove the molding surrounding the latch (gently) with a screwdriver by prying away from the tailgate. Remove the bolts from the tailgate on the backside of the latch assembly. lightly pull the lever assembly forward, but do not try to pull it out. The rod that came loose will be in the general area of the lever assembly. Most likely the retaining clip to the rod came off.
