That sounds like the handle has become detached or broken you will have to remove the trim panel to see

If you can't do it with the handle,then remove the screws holding the square cover on the middle inside of the tail gate and open,could be broken on the inside,must open to see. I have a 85 nissan 720 and had to fix mine before,my handle on the inside broke and I replaced it,think it was about 11 bucks,autozone has the part,may need a pair of plyers to pull rod to release it to lower tail gate.

Tail gate wont open


thats dangerous for the one holding the handle. there is a rod from each side that runs to the handle. one is probobly out of adjustment. If you can see them under the handle when you lift it up take a screw driver and pry it towards the handle. if it opens then its out of adjustment

1999 S10 Blazer tail gate wont open, the window part opens but when I lift the tail gate handle it will not open. I have to remove the taill gate cover and pull on the rods to get it to open


Your best bet is to check your area salvage yards. The handle has two holes in the the back which break out over time mainly due to lack of lubrication. Make sure you get the retaining clips that secure the rods to the handle and lubricate all associated linkage and latches first with WD-40 then with grease such as wheel bearing grease that will stay in place.

Handle not connected to mechanism inside to open tailgate. How else can it be opened


Hi!!

Remove the tail gate plastic cover and pull both gate latch rods towards each other, that should release the gate. There are some covers that have screws that can't be removed because the gate has to be open to do it. If the cover can't be removed completely, remove as many screws as you can, pull out cover and use a pair of needle nose pliers to pull the rods.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

2004 Mercury Monterey tail gate handle came completely off. The left side's guide is in place, but the right side is retracted - hence can't just put it back in. Any ideas?


Open tail gate. Use the access square inside - pull cable to open tail gate. Remove interier panel - 2 bolts plus 2 screws (2 bolts on handle and 1 screw each side), pull remainder out of guide clips. Now have full access to locking mechanism. Identified a retaining spring had come loose sending guides to shift left (exterior point of view). Place hand in tail gate and move guides over and put spring in place to retain. verify it works and put back together. Handle is the trickiest part as the bolts have to go through the interior panel and afix to the metal tail gate.

Tail gate will not open


does your tail gate has a kole to insert the key? like a lock system, if it does try to unlock it with key and then open it, but if not, then you are going to have to go to a bidy shop to have it repair
