If you cannot open it, after trying a few days, then you might consider getting a sawzall and cutting the posts and once you have it opened replace the posts (from a junk yard).

SOURCE: tail gate

this is a partial solution. Remove the inside panel on the tail gate -- simply remove several screws and pop off the panel. yes, you might break some plastic clips. That exposes the locking mechanism and it's a simple matter to open the tail gate from the inside now. See the rod with the threaded fitting? Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to adjust the rod that operates the lock, so I've just left the inside panel off for now ;-)

Rear tail gate opens then closes again by it self


obviously a problem with the auto mechanism , is there a sensor located , see your owners manual, in a particular area that has to bee kept clear and you may have inadvertantly placed something over the sensor , just guess as something must be telling the tailgate to shut , with the age of vehicle is it still covered under makers warrenty ? i'll look into the sensor thing

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.

Tailgate is jammed.


Take the center latch out and pull each rod from the center of the tail gate inwards to open the gate....you may find the center latch is bent or broken and not pulling one of the rods on one side.
