I can't get my 95 gmc tailgate to come off. I know that you usually open it alittle and it will come off. But mine will not. So I would like to know if there is a trick to taking a 95 sonoma tailgate off.

  1. Lower the tailgate to the horizontal position.
  2. Disengage the cable on the right and left sides from the striker bolts. To accomplish this, pull up on the middle of the cable assembly while raising the gate to a 45 degree angle, but be careful not to pinch the cable between the gate and bed.
  3. Remove the tailgate from the vehicle by lifting upward on the left side to separate the left hinge assembly, then disengage the right hinge.
To install:
  1. Install the gate to the vehicle by lowering the right hinge assembly into position first, then holding the gate at a 45 degree angle and seating the left hinge assembly.
  2. Engage the left and right cables to the striker bolts.
  3. Verify proper tailgate latching and operation.

There was a recall on window hinges for some models of Explorers. This was a safety recall and should not expire. Your vehicle may have been missed and they can run the VIN# to see if your model was included.

If no luck you may be able to get a glass shop to do it cheaply or go to a Salvage yard and get your parts there. Plus you can learn how it comes off on the Salvage part.

First chk the seals and see if there is a gap. If there is, you may have to ajust the hinges. Loosen the hinge bolts and. Do not remove them . Leave them loose enough to push the top in with the windoe down and latched. Then push the wind inward. Then carefully open the window and tighten two bolts on each hinge. Then ck the closing and alighment. If still needs more then repeat process but leave the bolts a litlle more snug so when you move it, it will stay untill you get the bolts tight. Good Luck, -Ned-

How to replace the tailgate hinge (tailgate side). There is only 1 bolt visable and once it is remove the hing still won't come off.

There are 2 bolts according to the GM service site. One on the side and one on the bottom of the tail gate. You will need to remove the tail gate to access the bottom bolt. Good Luck

3rd brake light won't work. Replace bulb...nothing

The contacts for the third brake light are two silver discs, about the size of a dime. They are located on the inside of the tailgate, hinge side. Make sure your carpet or any other loose item has not covered one or both contacts. Make sure they are fairly clean and make good contact.
