How do you open a 1990 Ford Ranger tailgate that will not fully release on one side?


The tailgate handle is attached to two rods with each one controlling a separate lock. If you raise the handle you may find a spot where you can see the rods in behind the fulcrum point of the handle. If you can see the rod that is not working properly you may be able to move it with a screwdriver enough for it to release the affected lock. Some trucks have removable access panels on the tailgates inside so you can open it when this problem occurs. Worst case scenerio is to break the handle assembly and get to the rods.

2002 Ford Ranger Exterior Tailgate Handle Broken


There should be an access panel on the bed side of the tail gate. If you have a liner installed on the tail gate you will need to remove it to gain access to the panel. Panel is probably held on with torx screws but you may get lucky and have regular bolts. just remove panel and the lock rods are held to the handle with little clips, just pop them off and remove the nuts that hold the handle assembly onto the tailgate, install is just the revers order.

The handle is removed by pulling the panel inside the tailgate, just below the top of it...it's held on by 6 or 8 screws. The latches on the bed itself are held on by torx head bolts, if I'm not mistaken

Handle on tailgate wont open


We have the same problem, remove the panel on inside tailgate and you will find the handle broken, it is made out of pot metal. You need new handle from dealer or salvage yard.

Can't get tailgate to open/unlock.


I had the same problem. It could be that its locked or that the mechanism inside is jammed. There is a access panel on the other side of the tailgate. to remove it you need torx screw driver (looks like an allen wrench tip). reomve all the screws and the panel. the rods that keep the tailgate closed are connected to a plastic piece. sometimes the rod slips out, just wedge it back in and the door should open and close normally.

2003 Ford Explorer back door latch will not open


Mine just did the exact same thing. The latch may be moving freely because it is not hooked to the latching mechanism anymore. In my case, the handle had broken where the handle hooks to the rod that operates the mechanism. Go to the Ford dealer and buy a new handle. Here in S.C. it was $24. You can't get this at the parts houses. Start by removing the plastic "Ford" cover that is over the liscense plate lights. You then have to remove the aluminum rivets that hold the handle to the tailgate from the outside and remove the broken latch. Remove the pull handle loop on the interior side of the tailgate (2 screws), unsnap the inside plastic tailgate interior panel, and pull down the black plastic sheeting that is underneath the panel to make access to the mechanism inside of the tailgate. There is also a hard plastic cover that you will see that needs to be pulled loose to open another access hole. Install the new tailgate latch handle by sliding back into the mounting holes and attach with two 10-32 screws and nuts. The new handle will come with a new yellow rod attachment piece on the handle. You will see inside of the tailgate a small rod hanging down, most likeky it will have the same rod attachment piece as the one on the new handle. Note the position of the yellow piece on the rod, as you will connect the new piece in the same place. Once the rod is hooked up, relubricate the metal mechanism with a light machine oil, replace the black plastic cover, replace the black plastic sheeting, (secure with a small amount of duct tape), replace the tailgate interior panel, replace the pull handle loop, shut tailgate, replace "Ford" cover over lights, and you're done!
