    Alright, stupid question.. :doah: but its relatively important at this point and time. I want to get my quad in the back of my truck, and I can't get the tailgate to release. I opened the handle up, and everything appears to be in order inside there, but I cannot get the gate to drop down so i can take a look at the drivers side latch. Any quick ways to get that biotch down ? :confused: :( I know I'm dumb, so bear with me..

    Does the linkage move when you pull on the handle? Is everything connected properly? Can you hear it moving or binding ?

    Pull the inspection plate off from the inside of the bed. It is rectangular and has about 8-10 screws. There will be two rods, one on each side, and a center cam type mechanism. Grap each rod firmly and spread them apart using slight pressure. You shouldn' need and pliers or anthing to move the rods.
