Take both peces to a auto parts house ask for carberator link clips usally in the Help section.Replace both clips while you ars at it, you won't have to do it all over again like i did.

Systematically cut it out with a sawzall reciprocating saw.

Cut the post that the latch attaches to when closed, if you can get at it with the blade.

Then, replace the post.

May need a long prybar to open if, simply stuck, while operating the opening button or lever.

Good luck with this replacement of the tail gate.

The latches are adjustable; look them over carefully ( vehicle side) to see if there are marks where they moved. Slightly loosen the latch mechanism and slide toward the back, the tighten. Do one side and test, then the other.

The tailgate latch on our 2006 Chevy truck is in the open positio

there are little metal rods that connect to the handle of the tailgate, just like the rods that connect your door handles to the door hinges and lock mechanism. just pop off the plastic cover over the tailgate handle and check and see if the rods are still connected to the handle.
