Question about 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche
Posted by Anonymous on
The lock mechanism is likely bent because the latch has become rusted or plugged with dirt. Lift the handle and spray lots of WD40 in the centre of the lock mechanism (under the fibreglass piece). You will need to manually open the lock with a long screwdriver. Look to the right of the latch mechanism you will see something that looks like a C. Use the screwdriver to lift that piece up. That should unlock it so that you can open the tailgate. When it's open, you'll have to use a torx screwdriver to unscrew the outside two torx bolts and then remove the plastic bevel which surrounds the latch handle. There will also be two plastic pins holding the bevel onto the tailgate. You may have to gently pry those pins loose with a screwdriver. When the bevel is off, the lock will come with it. Check the lock to see that the little metal lever is at a straight right angle. If it is bent you will have to straighten it with pliers and then reattach the bevel. If the metal lever is broken, you will need a new lock.
