That depends on. Weather you have a hatch back door that opens both ways. They are one of the hardest doors to open.I have worked on hatch back doors. But the new latches with child proof locks.It would be cheaper if you can go to a auto store that has self help books. ( a lot of stores will let you use them) .Then look up the way the locks work. This should give you a idea on what you can do to trip the lock. I know it is not much help. But you will not only learn about the locks. But you will learn enough if something else goes wrong. Then you are one step a head, and can fix it your self. And save a lot of money. I hope you got a little out of this. Danny

The top bezel around the glass just pops off, use a screw driver if necessary. Once off, there are two screws (one on each side) of the bottom bezel Remove them and the bottom pops off to a point. There are screws on the bottom also. Pull the bottom back far enough to reach down to the latch. There will be a couple of rods connected to it. The horizontal one has to be move from left to right Or vise versa, to release the latch. Pulling in on the door some makes it easier to unlatch. Once it pops, push the door open.

1996. How do I open locked, stuck tail gate?

You can take the panel off on the inside of the tail gate, and open it by manually pulling on the linkage rods at the same time.

The tail gate release handle has disconnected from the latching system and won't open. There appears to be a cable 'floating' around in the gap.

Hopefully your talking about a truck. With a flat screwdriver on both sides you'll need another hand here you'll have to push the locks in ward but not to damage sides.after tail gate opens there should be a panel on the top inside of the gate if you have a bedliner cover on the tail gate you'll need to remove it to get to that panel.after you get that panel off .you'll be able to see why that cable came off.

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)!!

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.

Hi;The latch/ouside handle is held on by four bolts on the inside of tailgat. Remove the four bolts and the handle should come clear so you can see the mechanism. Your on you own now.
