L want to completely remove the tailgate of a 1998 Chevrolet S10 pickup.


Really bad idea. This will cost you lower fuel mileage, danger of cargo loss. Mythbusters have run tests proving that the aero effects with the tailgate up form a cushion of air in the bed which reduces drag. None of my business I know.

2003 Blazer 2 door rear Glass opens but tailgate will not open


several things come to mind, how long since opened? if very long time might be latches rusted up, other is that connection inside has come loose. remove the inner liner of tailgate and look inside and try pulling the latch rods by hand and free up tailgate. fix rod if disconnected and /or clean latches with wd-40 and brush, spray clean and spray with lithium grease.

You can try taking the handle out and fishing the rods up to the opening. Other than that, its a tough job.

How do I replace cable in my tailgate so my tailgate will open?


You should have a rod in the tailgate. Do you have automatic locking in the tailgate. If so you need to take the plates off the tailgate and look inside. If you go to autozone.com and register with them, they will give you all the instructions that you can view and print for FREE.

Rear hatch will not open sound like the motor works but will not relase latch


there's a plastic actuator inside the tailgate that probably broke or at least came loose. You have to crawl into the back and release it. I ended up having to cut a little piece of carpet in the middle on the top of the tailgate area. Right where it fastens. You can manually release the glass with a screwdriver at that point. To replace the actuator, you need to take off the entire tailgate trim and metal underneath that to get to it. It sounds like a pain but trust me, not having the back glass be able to open or the tailgate area is much worse. It takes about 45 minutes to fix. The actuators are less than $10

Tailgate will not open; handle will not move


Either ,something is binding inside the tailgate, or broken.
You can get to the mechanism from the inside panel of the tailgate-- by
removing the screws that down the inside panel.
Once you remove the panel you should be able to open the tailgate by
pulling on the thin cable to unlatch the latches from both ends of the tailgate and a good look at the handle mechanism will tell you what wrong.
Good Luck.

I need to remove the tailgate on a 2007 Silverado pickup. Help. Please. Thanks


On almost all trucks, you can open the tailgate, remove the straps either by un-bolting them at the bed or lifting the tailgate slightly and sliding the staps up to the larger part of the hole that slides over the pin. Then lift the tailgate to about a 45 degree angle and lift up and out on the passenger side. When it slides out, shift it to the right and it will come off the left peg. Hope this helps :)
