There should be 3 screws on the inside of the tailgate. Take those out and and the latch should come out. It's won't fully remove until you disconnect the levers from the handle. There may also be a couple of screws holding the actual locking tabs onto the sides of the tailgate. You should be able to diagnose the actual broken piece from there.

1999 GMC Sierra truck tailgate release latches are broken and gate won't open?


If you remove the ring around the handle you will get a better view of the two rods that connect the handle to the outter latches.The ring just snaps in.I think a flat head screw driver from the bottom works the best.Once you have access to the rods you can push the inward twords each other to pop the gate.If the are broken out twords the tail lights then a thin flat head in the gap betwen the tail lights and tail gate should be able to push the spring loaded latches in to pop the gate,but you may need to borrow a extra set of hands.Well hope this helps.

My tailgate i must slam it to keep shut 2007 gmc sierra


If you remove the handle that opens the tail gate you will see two rods connecting to it. Each one goes to the latches that open at each side of the gate. Lube the latches up with a good grade of lithium grease after they soak for one day with WD40. They may work as good as new again if the rods are not bent out of shape. The rods are very inexpensive to replace also
