Question about 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche
How do you take the tail gate apart. I need to replace something to keep the tailgate shut. It will not hook on the latches???? HELP
There are bolts on the side of it and on the back and posiblly the bottom. take them out. just watch when you take out the ones in the middle of the back side your handel will fall out. take off that black cover.and you should be able to see inside of the tail gate.

Take it apart and lube everthing, then put back together. This has been working for 1 1/2 years with out a problem for now.

I have the same problem. I found that the release on the locking mecanism, on the tailgate itself, is the problem. What I have done, and has worked , before I close the tailgate, i pull on the handle that you would normally use to open it with, a couple of times then close the tailgate. i then pull back on the tailgate to make sure it cannot easily open. Hope this helps. I realize this is a temporary fix but it works for now.
