Check out the wrenches that are available at the auto parts store where you'll purchase the cables from. It's a good bet that they'll have what you're looking for at the same place.

SOURCE: Can't get tailgate to open/unlock.

I had the same problem. It could be that its locked or that the mechanism inside is jammed. There is a access panel on the other side of the tailgate. to remove it you need torx screw driver (looks like an allen wrench tip). reomve all the screws and the panel. the rods that keep the tailgate closed are connected to a plastic piece. sometimes the rod slips out, just wedge it back in and the door should open and close normally.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Ranger Exterior Tailgate Handle Broken

There should be an access panel on the bed side of the tail gate. If you have a liner installed on the tail gate you will need to remove it to gain access to the panel. Panel is probably held on with torx screws but you may get lucky and have regular bolts. just remove panel and the lock rods are held to the handle with little clips, just pop them off and remove the nuts that hold the handle assembly onto the tailgate, install is just the revers order.

The handle is removed by pulling the panel inside the tailgate, just below the top of it...it's held on by 6 or 8 screws. The latches on the bed itself are held on by torx head bolts, if I'm not mistaken

How do you open a 1990 Ford Ranger tailgate that will not fully release on one side?


The tailgate handle is attached to two rods with each one controlling a separate lock. If you raise the handle you may find a spot where you can see the rods in behind the fulcrum point of the handle. If you can see the rod that is not working properly you may be able to move it with a screwdriver enough for it to release the affected lock. Some trucks have removable access panels on the tailgates inside so you can open it when this problem occurs. Worst case scenerio is to break the handle assembly and get to the rods.

How to remove a tailgate


from a '02 Ranger...should be same...
rate me FIXYA!
  • disconnect tailgate stop cables
  • open tailgate normally...but stop when you are nearly halfway down (45 degree angle to ground).
  • now, pull tailgate away from bottom pivot (hinge) pin on either the left or right side of tailgate. This should allow both hinge pins to be free from the rest of truck.
