Question about 1989 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
Thats what you will need to do is to remove the interior gate panel so you can release the latch. It will come off although a bit difficult with the gate closed, with a little care you can do it without breaking anything. It sounds like possibly a linkage retainer clip broke.
Try pushing in on the gate while turning the release handle in case the latch is in a bind if that dont work remove the panel

I experienced the same problem. I was able to get the panel off, not an easy task, by prying it over the top. There are two screws holding it at the top and essentially you are pulling the cover off of these screws. Once the cover is off, you have access to the actuator arms .I was able to open the tailgate, change the lock, lube everything up and put it back together with no damage to the panel at all.
