Question about 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
The tailgate latch on my 2002 silverado seems to be stuck. I'm unable to release the tailgate from the closed position...what should I do??
Remove the molding ring from around the handle. Becareful not to break the taps that lock it in. After removing the molding you should see the handle mechanism. There is a rod coming in from each side (each one runs out the the actual latch). Make sure each rod is connected into the handle assembly. If it is not put the rod into the hole and find the retainer clip to keep it in place.

Take some WD40 and spray the latch release in the center of the tail-gate and then spray on the latches on both ends of the tailgate. If this doesn't work you can malipulate the center latch with a flat tip screw-driver by prying gently on both sides to work in the lubricant. Both sides have to be released for the tail-gate to open. The latches are released be a metal rod going to each of the latches.
