SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram 1500 need to open up the tailgate

not sure what you mean by "sealed unit". if your problem is that your tailgate wont latch together properly, check the condition of the tailgate cables and look for damage to the outer covering and cable itself. it could be that the cable is getting caught b/w gate and bed when you close it. due to a misalignment. yes, i would lubricate the mechanisms with wd40, or a quality graphite lubricant. i would also access the internal mechanisms that actuate the tailgate opening. lubricate those parts too. finally make sure that the cable's tang is slid past on the bolt. this should fix your issues.

SOURCE: hood release wont latch

This maybe a problem of the hood being misaligned. in order to remedy this you will have to adjust the 4 bolts on the hinges holding the hood in place and the latch little by little. But first try a penetrating oil on the latch assembly and look for anything out of place.

How do you open the tailgate on a 1990 nissan pathfinder?


To open the tailgate on a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder just insert the key in the lock and turn to the left, then pull the handle to open. To open just the window, turn key to the right.

There is also a small lever next to the latch on the tailgate that you push in to re-lock the tailgate before closing it.

2009 Ford F350 tailgate latch stuck in the open position, tailgate won't latch closed.


I am not quite sure, but on the sides of the tailgate, where it locks, can't you push the mechanism back? I think you can. It either turns them from latch to open. You can try this. See if you can push it into lock mode.

Sounds like the link rod to the latch are jammed in the locked position by something inside the door or it came off. Any way, you have to remove the door panel to get access to it.
