The easiest way to get the diagram of the locking mechanism is to go to an auto parts store and purchase a repair manual for the 2004 Trailblazer. It should contain the diagram you are requesting, but if not you may be able to get one from the dealer. Incidentally, there should be a release switch inside the vehicle that will open the tail gate.

1999 S10 Blazer tail gate wont open, the window part opens but when I lift the tail gate handle it will not open. I have to remove the taill gate cover and pull on the rods to get it to open


Your best bet is to check your area salvage yards. The handle has two holes in the the back which break out over time mainly due to lack of lubrication. Make sure you get the retaining clips that secure the rods to the handle and lubricate all associated linkage and latches first with WD-40 then with grease such as wheel bearing grease that will stay in place.

The rear gate latch is stuck in the closed position with the gate in the open position not allowing the gate to lock into position


It sounds like a rod going to the latch came off. You can try to pry the latch to the open position while the outside handle is in the pull to open position at the same time. If that does not work the rod indeed came off inside to the latch or handle area

2004 Mercury Monterey tail gate handle came completely off. The left side's guide is in place, but the right side is retracted - hence can't just put it back in. Any ideas?


Open tail gate. Use the access square inside - pull cable to open tail gate. Remove interier panel - 2 bolts plus 2 screws (2 bolts on handle and 1 screw each side), pull remainder out of guide clips. Now have full access to locking mechanism. Identified a retaining spring had come loose sending guides to shift left (exterior point of view). Place hand in tail gate and move guides over and put spring in place to retain. verify it works and put back together. Handle is the trickiest part as the bolts have to go through the interior panel and afix to the metal tail gate.

How to open tail gate on 2004 hyundai when latch wont work my hundai santa fe latch handle seems to not work and i cant i open the tail gate how do i get at the mechanism?


from inside if you can get to the panel and remove it to reach the mechanism to open the tailgate and try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you

Tailgate won't lock on my 2002 Avalanche. Key turns, I can hear movement but lock does not catch. Any suggestions or diagrams how to fix.


I have the solution to every one out there with tailgate lock problems......I had the very same problem but wasnt interested in getting a power lock.......Here goes.....it costs you some wd40 or liquid wrench.....nothing else......open the tail gate.....you will see the screws that hold the handle in place.....take off the two outer screws only....then pop off the handle cover....yes it does come off without breaking.....you will see something shaped like a "C".....it should move back and forth.....with the tailgate closed you should be able to move that "C" back and forth...it swivels on a pivot you can see in the opening above the tailgate handle.......this is the lock mechanism.....mine was seized up.....anyways......with the tailgate still closed squirt some wd40 or liquid wrench in the area directly above the tailgate handle........that "C" thing will move again and your problem is over...email me if you figured it out........
I was delighted with the fix.....and it's so easy to do.....then put everything back in its place......tell everyone you know....
