1A Auto Parts: @kaisnyker this video shows you how to replace a broken tailgate handle.
Usually they will break and require a repair.
Tom Smithlin: Thanks for posting this. I got the bezel off intact and wouldn't have had
a clue without your help. Finished the job in less than 15 minutes.
Richard Bryant: Piece of cake, took $15.00 for both pieces to the door step and 15 minutes
to install. Video took away any guessing.
David Arnold: Great video on the A/C resistor replacement. As you noted in the video
pressing the "spring clip" to disconnect the resistor from the blower motor
was a bear - even after I loosened the front of the blower motor
cover...but then I looked throw the front of the cover and could see the
connection in the 10 O'clock position -- all it took was a flat head screw
driver to push the clip in front the loosened front cover and the
connection popped right out......no killing your fingers trying to press
the "spring clip" to get the connector to release.
kaisnyker: what was wrong with the handle that it needed to be replaced? details
please. I don't follow when the description says broken or snapped...whats
broken? what snapped?
im looking to fix my truck tailgate as I can not open it. the handle pulls
up but it feels like its not attached to anything. now I haven't taken it
off yet that's why im on here I didn't know how to take the cover off.
other videos show the bar might have come out of it. that's what it seems
to me but ill have to get that plate off. I need to get it fix fast as I
use the truck for work so I hope there are places around here to get what I
need as I can not wait a few days for it to be delivered.
NativeWrestler: Would this be the same way for a Chevy Colorado as well?
Agee Motorsports: Thanks for the help! Very straightforward.
Jordin Simons: Amazing video. great installation instructions!!! Thank you

1A Auto Parts: We currently don't have a video that shows this repair. You may have to
check for bolts that you may need to remove under the tailgate handle, or
there may possibly be some type of access panel on the inside of the
tailgate. If you absolutely can't figure it out. Go to 67-72chevytrucks com
and create a post, some of the members will help you. Tell them 1aauto.com
sent yah. Hope this helps you out.
THETGROVER: Okay u said to cut around the bolts so u can put ur wrench on it, and then
u used a socket!

GPglider: I have a 03' Chevy 1500. If my tailgate won't open (I don't have the keys,
bought it used), will replacing the Tailgate handle fix that problem.
arizona p: GREAT VIDEO THANK YOU!!!
Carlos Salazar: I have an issue where my rods simply fell of the hook. I was hoping to see
how you placed them back in there needed position but i wasn't able to see
that due to the angle of the camera.

kenman1717: good instructional video. i work work at a dealer and do r&r tailgate
handles all the time. but one thing i have learned, lube is not always a
good thing, because it attracts dirt and debris which can cause the moving
parts to bind and seize. have had to take a torch to a few tailgate handle
pivots and burn off all the crap and lube in order to get them to move.
most of the time i replace them, but some people don't want to go that
ezskanken: I got an 05' GMC Sierra giving me 2 codes. P0054 and P0060. When I unplug
both sensor 2's on bank 1 and 2, the truck starts and runs. But when plug
them back in, the truck starts and then dies soon after. Please help! I've
gotten down from 10 codes down to these last 2, would love to be able to
drive my truck again. Been almost 2 months without it. Thank you in advance
and please keep making these great videos
Chad Douglass: I have an '03 Sierra that the tailgate won't stay shut sometimes on. I have
to slam it multiple times in order for it to latch. Will replacing the
tailgate handle fix this problem or is there a simpler way?
1A Auto Parts: Chad, try a little white lithium grease on the latch to see if that helps
to free it up. It could just be a little sticky. If that doesn't work then
you may need to replace the latch. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: @ezskanken You may want to fix what the code's pointing to. It sounds like
there may be an issue with the H02S sensor.
silentmikew: I replaced a broken clip with 2 little zip ties
Mustang Medic: @1aauto Your one of the first channels that had good information we could
use for the MustangMedic Truck. Found out our back handel cowling was glued
on too. Just like your video..
soundlive7: Thanks for the great vid!
6SpeedSilverado: what about the door handle, i cant find a video on this?
1A Auto Parts: If the truck has a pain on bed liner as shown in the video, you would need
to trim it away so that you can get a socket on the bolt.
Harrison Taylor: I drive a 1996 gmc sierra 1500 and my tailgate handle doesnt work very
well, do you have a video on how to replace that style of handle?
sarg: thanks for this my handle was missing i hade to use vise grips to pull
those strands to un latch it lol
George Brown: sir i have a 78 chevy and i have been fixing it up from the steering hoses
to the windows panels tailgate and all and if i had a problem i went to
youtube and went to 1A Auto and i dont want to sound like im advertising
for ya but you sure did help me out alot on my truck and i thank you keep
up the good work on the videos.
Sinbozn: This video was perfect instruction for my problem. I broke the handle.
Thank-you so much.

robert crosby: I have a 1995 GMC Suburban with two "barn doors" for a tailgate. The latch
mechanism in the left door is broken. Do you have a video about how to
repair it and the parts to do so? The broken piece is the piece that moves
both wires to release the top and bottom latches when you pull on the
handle that is revealed when the right door is open. Seems like a few
plastic parts have split...
Guinelle1: that tailgate was obviously repainted at one point, whoever removed the
bezel probably broke it and you can see the overspray all over the old
