This sounds like gravel got into the latch, you will need to remove any debrie you can see use a screw driver to clean it out, hit the release and try to unlatch the latch at the bottom .

L want to completely remove the tailgate of a 1998 Chevrolet S10 pickup.


Really bad idea. This will cost you lower fuel mileage, danger of cargo loss. Mythbusters have run tests proving that the aero effects with the tailgate up form a cushion of air in the bed which reduces drag. None of my business I know.

2005 toyota tacoma tailgate is stuck shut any suggestions hard to get the plastic cover off to work with tailgate shut I've wedged to keep open and try to pry the latch open going to lubricant with wd40...


I've never even seen a Tacoma but usually these things work with thin steel rods inside the panel. Is the catch releasing on either side or not at all? If you can undo or prise off something to access the rod then hopefuly you can wriggle it enough to get the catch to release. Lashings of WD40 isn't going to hurt, just wipe it off the paintwork afterwards

Toyota tacoma tailgate handle stuck


take the inside covers off the tailgate and lubricate the mechanical parts ie spring. You may have to turn the yoke the first couple of times until it loosens up. Just did mine works like new.

My 08 toyota tacoma tailgate latch is jammed and


Some gravel has gone down the latch holes on each side. Take the tailgate out and place it on something that won't scratch it like an old blanket. Turn it upside down each way and gently tape on it with your hand to dislodge the gravel while operating the latch.

05 tacoma tailgate latch stuck


I had the same problem. I figure that dirt/rust may have accumulated inside the latching mechanism. I was able to fix it using the following steps.
1 - Remove the plastic cap that covers the top of the gate.
2 - Remove as many of the remaining torx bolts from the inside cover (you will need to do this to get inside the gate).
3 - Next, try and get some WD40 on/in the latch mechanism.
4 - Using a large screwdriver, you will need to pry the lever attached to the cable in order to release the latch.

Not a pretty process but it seemed to work. I give the latches a good lubrication frequently now, until I get around to replacing them.

Tailgate will not open


There is a cutout on the inner tailgate cover that can be removed with a screwdriver. This will give you access to the latch assembly. There is a small lever mounted on the latch assembly. When you move it toward the driver side it will release the tailgate.

This works on my 03 Liberty but not on my 05 Liberty. They both use the same type of latch. Does anyone know where to get a latch other than a Jeep dealer? Jeep wants $235.00 for the latch.

Can't open tailgate....The handle had broken and I replaced it. After that it worked good for about a day...then it stopped working again. I have the panel off and it appears that the cable may have...


I have the same problem, I pull on the cable, the metal piece moves on the lock acuator but tailgate does not open. Seems like the ACUATOR is stuck in LOCK position and pulling on the cable does not help. Any way to manually force the ACUATOR to open? I can replace the ACUATOR if I can lift the tailgate up but I can't.
