Can't open tailgate (Legacy 1991, EJ22, Station)
Posted 21 October 2012 - 06:49 AM
Anyway, since I haven't reinstalled the cladding yet, I could easily open the tailgate from the inside. I then adjusted that metal rod and tested the opening several times. No problem, everything works fine.
So I decided that it would be time to reinstall the cladding am make everything looking nice again. That was a mistake!
The next day, I couldn't open my tailgate when I try to and since I can't reach the necessary components from the inside now, I have no clue how to open it.
Does anyone have an idea how to open that tailgate? Except from destroying the cladding That would be my next approach when there is no alternative...
Thanks in advance!

You can try to grap the unlock handle and push hard in and then pull very hard. It can open with a loud bang. I had it once when a steel wire was locked with the locking mechanism.

Next things to do: front axles, ball joints, track rod ends and brake pads (perhaps also brake discs) And installing the LPG equipment How nice that there is always work to do
