based on the picture, you need to remove the bolts from that hinged end

and the other end is attached to a pivot ball on the body of your car... there's that black metal clip that you have to dislodge to remove that end

an ebay seller has replacement ball pivots as well and a better price than amazon

How to remove tailgate struts?


If you mean standard tailgate supports, no electric / pneumatic or power ones. Then you just lower the tailgate and bend the "v" hinges upwards until they come off, or cables on newer trucks, and lift gate to a 45 degree angle and they pull right off. If you mean industrial style heavy duty stuff, re post this question and I'll send you a wide variety of schematics. I have info from everything from right hand drive 3 cylinder pick ups, up to big rigs and even some VERY heavy equipment. Hope I helped. Grimm

My 2001 Suburban tailgate is very difficult to lift. It opens but I have to hold it up or it will slam shut. I believe it has something to do with the pneumatics?


Hi, what you need to do is replace the lifts. With someone holding the hatch up, this is easily done. Look for a clip that holds them on. If you see one, remove it or pull it back. If there is no clip, the lifts pull straight off the ball. Here is an example of the parts you need: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Mighty-Lift-Support-Lifts/_/N-8ii2g?itemIdentifier=28084&_requestid=272279

The tailgate on my 2007 Honda Odyssey lost all pneumatic (?hydraulic) lift. It is a manual tailgate, not one of the automatic ones. If I lift the tailgate it just free-falls if I let go. This happened...


You have to replace the lift supports on the rear door, found at this link:
http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/PartSearchCmd?storeId=10151&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&pageId=partTypeList&suggestion=&searchTerm=lift
Or at your local parts store or ebay.
Be careful not to drop it into you or drop it to hard and brake the glass.
I would see if there are any recalls on this for your model and vin number too. Your vehical seems kind of new for this to happen already, but it is possible.
Here are some links to recalls:
1. http://www.automobilemag.com/am/2005/honda/odyssey/recalls.html

91 4 runner tailgate, window wont open


No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you

How to remove a tailgate


from a '02 Ranger...should be same...
rate me FIXYA!
  • disconnect tailgate stop cables
  • open tailgate normally...but stop when you are nearly halfway down (45 degree angle to ground).
  • now, pull tailgate away from bottom pivot (hinge) pin on either the left or right side of tailgate. This should allow both hinge pins to be free from the rest of truck.
