Question about 1994 Isuzu Pickup
Hi, I went to open the tailgate yesterday and felt something give inside. The latch handle moves but does nothing useful.
There is no access from the rear of the tg, the latch handle assembly is riveted rather solidy to the tailgate and it's hard to get to the latches themselves.
1) prodded around between the tailgate and the bed but can't get the latch to release.
2) pulled the taillights to get a wrench in to undo the bolts attaching the body side of the latch, but as the bolt is undone the head is blocked by the tailgate flange..actually my gear wrench stuck in there...lol.
3) Next I plan to dremel slots into the end of the latch bolts so I can unscrew them from the taillight side.
4) I'm hoping once I get the tailgate down and remove the tailgate part of the lock it will be obvious how to fix, but not sure if it will be possible to work through the latch openings of the tailgate.
So...wondering if there is an easier way to get the tailgate down and next how do I fix it?
