Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The rod on the right hand side of the tailgate is no longer attached to the lever handle. How do I get the tailgate open?? Then how do I open the tailgate to repair the rod?
You should be able to feel around and locate that rod. After you get it you can use some pliers or vice grips to put on the rod to release the lock on that side and the handle on the other side.
As long as the locks and the rods move freely and are in good shape then all you will need is a new handle asm. It will come with new clips and on the other side of the tail-gate are 3 torque-head screws that will need to be removed to replace that handle.
