Question about 2004 Ford Freestar
Hello, I think you best bet is to take a trip to a Salvage yard and find a tailgate. You are going to need part of the lock mechanism anyway and you can figure out how the panels come off by working on one at the Yard.
If you find a good matching panel in the Yard, you might buy it and just replace the original panel with a Salvaged panel. Then you could be as aggressive as needed to get into the tailgate cavity to move the lock rods. You may need an electric lock solenoid, too.
If the lock mechanism has an interior handle, someone may be able to crawl in the cargo area and manually open the lid.
I hope myy solution was very helpful to you.
