They have two small clips on each end, remove both small clips with small screw driver, then they will pop right out, also get a broom stick or some thing to hold tail gate or it WILL fall on your head, when you remove one of the lift support's and that hurts.

    The shocks are called lift gate supports,they have a clip on them that you pry out with a screw driver,and the rod end comes off,and the new ones ,just pry back the clip,it will stay out,and place on the ball,and push the clip back,on to secure it.if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leftgete is not opening what can be the problem .."? The motor is working but is not lefting up.


Attempt to open manually. With the gate open use the remote to close. If the support pistons lose their gas pressure the gate will close automatically but not have the force to open Replace the gas piston on the passenger side.

If something is blocking the sensor will also prohibit the lift gate from opening.

Hope this helps?.

It seems that I have a short in my wires. My tail lights wont stay on. My problem is the lift gate is stuck and I cannot access the lights. When u use the remote to open the doors it makes a funny sound....


You should be able to remove the trimpanel on the lift-gate. then at the location of the striker in the middle-bottom of lift-gate you should be able to access a rod. Grab the rod with pliers, if pliers won,t fit the rod connects to a metal lever attached to the striker assembly, pry the lever away from the striker and this should release you gate....Good Luck!!!

The "Lift Gate Open" Light stays on, on the overhead message panel. The actually lift gate is closed securely.


The lift gate latch is at fault the switch contacts in the latch are worn out replace the liftgate latch and your problem is solved

Lift gate wont open


OK, this minor collision may have shifted the actual clip and latch assembly. You may have to totally disassemble the latch assembly to release this lift gate.

Any kind of major or minor shifting of the lift gate lock latch assembly can cause misalignment that will jam this delicate precise locking mechanism.

The liftgate will not stay open. There is fluid showing below the support cylinder on the drivers side. I believe the cylinders are shot and need instructions on replacing ford freestyle lift gate sup


for the most part there are small clips top and bottom of the cylinders use a small screw driver and pry the clips out and remove be sure to put a broom handle under the hatch or have someone to hold it up why you are replaceing them so the lift gate does not fall on you.
