Hi, to remove the tailgate off a ford bantam 1.3i you need an imoact driver with a phillips tip , with the tailgate closed remove the phillips bolt beneath the pivoting pin, now open the tailgate and remove the bolt above the pivoting pin , reach beneath the bumper corner and retrieve the the pin moving the tailgate slightly up and down, with the tailgate now resting on the rear sill, remove the collapsable hinge , the operation is best done with an assistant .
Hope this helps a bit;

Tailgate on a 01' Ford Windstar LX is rattling.


From your description, I believe your tailgate is not latching when you close it. Slamming it shut instead of simply closing it should solve your problem

I have a new shape ford focus (05)i cannot open the tailgate without useing the key fob ???????


does the hatch open with the trunk release in the car as it should since it sends an electronic signal just like the key fob. The cylinder for the trunk lock is most likely seized and if you want to replace.. you'll need to remove your trim for the trunk to access the locking assembly
