SOURCE: Can't get the tailgate open on my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I had the same problem. I was able to get the back window open.
I took the the 4 screws off that are on top of the inside of the door (where the tailgate window latch is).
Got a metal coat hanger. straightened it and made a hook at one end.
carefully pushed the plastic part of the tailgate towards the inside
slid the coat hanger straight down (to the level of the tailgate key/handle) to catch the door latch from the inside and pulled up.
that will get the tailgate open.
then you need to take the rest of the screws out of the lower part of the tailgate to get at the latch assembly. Carefully take the plastic off.
(you will need to take the nice black insulation stuff off the metal part of the door carefully so you can replace it and tape it up if necessary after fixing the latch.)
peel the insulation off the metal part of the door, you will see the assembly rod has come off the latch and will need putting back in place and a little sqweeze to stay on.
really bad design I guess, but since I fixed it at 140000, I haven't had any trouble with it at 166000.

SOURCE: FORD EXPLORER 2004 CLICKING NOSE FROM LEFT REAR INSIDE

The problem is most likely a damper door actuator that has a stripped gear. I replaced mine in my Explorer and it appears to be a common problem. To replace it you must remove the side panel which is held in by the door seals and spring clips. This will expose the rear a/c unit. Then you must remove the bolts securing the a/c housing to allow you to pull the housing away from the fender to get access to the actuator. The actuator is bolted on and will require a small socket to remove it. You can hear and feel the actuator thumping to determine which one it is. When replaced, the actuator shaft must be aligned with the damper door which is inside the housing. The part number for mine was YL5Z*19E616*AA and lists for $68.18 at the Ford dealer. I found it later online for $35.

SOURCE: I need to remove 2004 toyota sequoia tailgate door

Slide the plastic cover off the tailgate ******** the passenger side to reveal a 10mm bolt.

Remove the bolt and the strap/

Using a flat prying instrument, remove the center trim section one the inside of the tailgate above the window.

Grab the top edges of the side trim sections on the inside of the tailgate and pull down to remove.

Using a flat instrument, pry at the bottom edge of the tailgate main trim panel, it is held on with about 12 plastic pop-in fasteners so it will take several 'pops' before it is released.

Behind that there is a metal access cover the width of the tailgate, held on by ~5x pop in fasteners and ~10x 10 mm bolts. Remove the bolts and pop the panel loose, it will hang by the wiring so support it while you do your camera work :)

The license plate trim panel, should you need to remove it, requires remoaval of the license plate.

Then remove ~3x 10mm bolts from the top of the panel, accessed from the inside.

Using long needle nose pliers compress the pop-fasteners holding the lower corners of the license plate trim panel on, being careful not to let it drop and slide down the vehicle, scratching the paint :)

SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Sequoia Tailgate Latch - how to replace

Remove your tag bolts and remove the cover by pulling easy as not to break the tabs. The tag lights can but do not have to come out. At this point you can access the handle. You will find that the handle has a plastic arm that trips the latch by pulling a cable it will be broken. To open the door just pull on the cable. Once I open the door I removed the inside door panel and a metal cover which has about 8 10mm bolts it gives you more room to work.

How do I replace back door lock cyl. on 92 4runner?


not really. it is best done with two people. remove the inside paneling, roll the window down and open the tailgate. then use a phillips screwdriver and push down the side tabs so the tailgate thinks it closed and roll the window up, have the second person hold the glass. You now have access to change the key cylinder.

Rear hatch on my 2001 explorer will not open, rear window will but tailgate hatch will not. how do i open it with out the unlock button, no manual release that i can see...


I had a clip break when I tried to open my tailgate. I had to remove my inside hatch panel and find my way to the handle assembly. A little plastic clip (shaped like a T) had finally worn out, which wouldn't hold the locking arms, and I had to go to a Ford dealership for a $3 part; tailgate has worked fine since then!

1988 brono rear electric window will not work , How do I access the motor , dosnt appear to be an access panel on tail gate ?


Drop the tailgate, remove the access panel on the inside of the tailgate. if the motor is turning but not doing anything, you should be able to pull the window out by hand which will allow access to the motor. support the window with a saw horse and one of those noodle things. To remove the motor you will have drill two holes in the tailgate. The replacement gear kit that I purchased had a template that you place over the area that needed to be drilled.
The holes allow a a socket on a 1/4 drive extension reach the bolts
holding the motor to the assembly. normally the only thing that is bad is the crush cylinders inside the gear assembly. I purchased my 1988 Bronco new in 1988 and have replaced the same parts at least 4 times. Hope this helps.

Rear window on my 1987 ford bronco will not work


This has several possiblilitys, it could be the switch in the dash has gone out even if it does not work with the key in the tailgate. other possible item could be the window motor or a sensor that detects if the gate is up or down. check motor wires for power when the switch is activated by pulling off the panel on the tailgate, if it is getting power i would suggest replacing the motor. if not you may have to trace wires to the drivers side of the tail gate and find the sensor.i had to by pass mine a while ago. makes it much easier to clean the glass on the inside cause the window will roll up with the gate down.

Open door light stays on on dashboard - ford puma


The contacts of the sensor to the Door can be dirty. Thus it can't sense the door properly and remarking open. Also there is a solenoid behind the Door which can be defective which can cause the problem. Kindly call a technician and check the parts.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

I believe you have to open the rear window to open the tailgate??
Tailgate opens right to left [ passenger to driver ] side?
Tailgate handle will not work if window not open - feels like it is disconnected. The "button" releases the window only.
If you open the rear window and the tailgate still will not open. You need to remove the inside tailgate cover to get access to the handle and release switch. You can access the the window release the same way [ just a little harder to do]. You will probably end up breaking the vinyl panel to do this but so will the auto body shop and they will charge you $$$$$ to replace it.
