    Default Open inconsistent tail gate

    2005 Avalance
    the tail gate will not always open even when the lock is unlocked.
    How do you get inside to open the gate.
    What is the procedure to access the latch handle to replace it or other locking components
    Explodeds view of the gate to determine access procedures
