Chevy Silverado Tailgate Latch Repair




What do you think about this video?

Tim Coe: Thanks! I’ve got a 2003 Silverado with a tailgate that won’t open and I think it’s the same problem you just showed me how to solve! Thanks for taking the time to help others!

extorter: just bought these bastards on amazon, i broke my bezel as well.... good goin GM!

search on amazon:
1999-2007 Chevy Silverado GMC Sierra Tailgate Handle Rod Clip New Left & Right OEM Replacement Pair 88981030, 88981031

Edward Schwenk: Amazon is a good resource for those plastic clips. A pack of ten (five red, five green) for nine bucks. I don't know if they are made cheaper than GM originals, but I have had good luck with the ones off the internet. The plastic piece that fits over the handle is called a bezel, and again you can get aftermarket ones off Ebay, and Amazon for a fraction of the cost of G.M. price. Good assessment regarding the neighbor's problem solving abilities! (lol)

james ray: It called a bezel I think you should have pried up the bottom first I have same problem with tailgate

Dakodah Lewis: Thank you for your video, it helped me replace mine. But my black plastic handle cover thing broke like yours did, lol

Travis Steffen: Latch is not the handle

Idahoborn66: I have watched about 20 videos trying to see how to remove the bezel. I only know the name because they always mention it, and show how to put it back on! Thank you sooooo much. I was afraid of breaking it. You rock! (well, turns out that even the video did not prevent me from breaking it :( oh well. thanks anyway)

Tiger Atkinson: Thanks! I think that is helpful to see someone work thru an issue as I would have done.

Filiberto Vargas: thanks for this video

Skytrekin: Autozone has a door lock rod clip assortment pack P/N 75450 also has the right clip inside it. It was a little over $3 The white one fits perfectly.

Patt H.: Great video! I'm glad you showed the broken piece. I took care with mine after watching this & got mine off successfully.

deborah lay: I just broke my brothers tailgate last week borrowing his truck...I am sure this is what broke... thank you soooo much ...

Benny Salvador: Cool thanks for the how to video.

Jerry Hamilton: Any idea of how to get to the rod if the clip is broken at the outer edge where the tailgate meets the bedside?  Both my clips at the tailgate handle are fine, but the rod is hanging loose on the passengers side.  Trying to find a fix for that.

Mike Vormwald: You need (German) Max 1 adhesive - best adhesive I've ever used. Glues anything to anything instantly.

Charles Skelly: LMSTactical Thank You for NOT editing out the broken outer shield piece or your struggle in how one might think to go about replacing the little plastic clip. It is in watching others and struggling of our own is how we all learn. Thanks
