If you go on the inside of the door see if there are any screws or a place where you can pry off the inside of the tailgate there should be a carpet type material in there you have to go behind it to get at the latch or try and fiddle with it on each sides of the gate.

2004 Avalanche: how to replace tail gate latch 2003 1500 chev...


Use torx screwdriver to remove the two smaller outside torx bolts inside the tailgate. This will free the bevel around the latch handle. There are also two plastic pins that need to be pried out before the bevel comes completely free. Then remove the three larger torx bolts from inside the tailgate that hold the latch assembly in. When it is loose, use a screwdriver to open the blue/green plastic clips and free them from the threaded rods (right and left). Then use a screwdriver and some muscle to pry the fibre glass piece out enough so that you can pull the entire latch mechanism up and out from behind the fibreglass. It is a real tight fit so don't give up on it. Install the new latch mechanism and repeat all steps backwards. When the latch is in place with the two plastic clips attached to the threaded rods and the three torx screws are holding it firmly, you will have to use a needle nose pliers to reattach the wire spring to the top of the latch so that the latch mechanism resets. Test it before reinstalling the bevel.

1999 GMC Sierra truck tailgate release latches are broken and gate won't open?


If you remove the ring around the handle you will get a better view of the two rods that connect the handle to the outter latches.The ring just snaps in.I think a flat head screw driver from the bottom works the best.Once you have access to the rods you can push the inward twords each other to pop the gate.If the are broken out twords the tail lights then a thin flat head in the gap betwen the tail lights and tail gate should be able to push the spring loaded latches in to pop the gate,but you may need to borrow a extra set of hands.Well hope this helps.

Tailgate latch is broken, can't open tailgate. Window is open.


unfortunatly there is no way to open the tail gate(without breaking the inside cover )but once you do that,your hand can fit inside the gate and all you have to do is feel around for the gate latch,pull it,then the gate will open. hope this helps(i have a 1996 blazer i had to do the same thing)!!

Repair broke tail gate latch on gmc truck


There should be 3 screws on the inside of the tailgate. Take those out and and the latch should come out. It's won't fully remove until you disconnect the levers from the handle. There may also be a couple of screws holding the actual locking tabs onto the sides of the tailgate. You should be able to diagnose the actual broken piece from there.

2004 gmc sierra 2500 hd tail gate wont shut with out slamming it hard 3 or 4 times and sometimes falls open what the F


Look around to see if there's anything impeding the movement of the gate. If there's nothing impeding the movement, slowly close the gate until the latches closes up against the latch anchor points (one on each side of the gate). One of these latches may be stuck in the closed position or partially closed causing them to not allow you to shut your gate. Or the could be stuck open and the ratchet teeth (the bumps on the inside of the latch that are suppose to snag when closed) may be worn or broken. If that's the case, you'll need to remove the panels for your gate in order to get into and behind the latch. Also try spraying some lithium grease into the latch to see if that helps. Don't use WD-40
