Hello to everyone:

New to this forum. I just bought a Grand Cherokee Laredo 1998. Pristine condition. A real bargain. I have just found one problem that I would like to solve with some advise. The tailgate will not open when you pull on the handle. Glass works ok. Is there any way to dismantle the trim without tearing it to access the lock mechanism? Thanks guys.

Keep the forum running. It looks great.

I searched the terms tailgate and hatch and casually found this thread. The trim is not very expensive. Only remove around 10 screws and replace it. Be careful with those pressure plastic pins, that help hold the trim. Tehy have to be released one at a time. Good luck.
