My Tailgate that hates me

Post by tobytj »

I have had an on going battle with my wagon tail gate lock either jamming or not closing properly. I have adjusted the hinges and position of the latch point to no avail.

When it started sticking again on Sunday a thought maybe smoothing rough edges on the lock arms with a file might help. Started filing and the lock arm wobbled........hmmmm?

Long story short, the two 8mm phllips head bolts that secure the lock into the tailgate were loose. Probably for years.

Bolts tight , problem gone.
