The problem is that the interior end of the cable is not attached to the lever and is just hanging, so I feel it is necessary to replace the cable. The latch lever seems to be okay, but does the cable come as an assembly with the interior latch? I can pull on the cable and it does not release the hood, so I was asking for detailed instructions to R & R it.
Also the tailgate panel - screws or pops off with door closed or??
Yes just the inner fender liner .Should be able to just replace the inside handle these are what usually fail.Heres the diagram of the rear tailgate.
HEres the hood cable it usually break from the inner handle or falls out of the holder for the cable.
Thank You - it is indeed a bad cable - if I understand correctly I have to remove the left front tire and inner fender well assembly to change. Is that correct?
On to next qyestion - I am going to clean fuel injectors - my kit requires A - disable fuel pump and B - block return line to tank. So is there a fuse or relay I can remove to stop pump and yet allow engine to run ( specific location)??
We live in a small town with no Izuzu dealer - can you recommend an online site for parts??
Ok - here's more - First of all got tailgate to open and it seems that all is electrical - both to lock and unlock and to open glass and to open tailgate. I can find no electrical power to back, but lots of wires. Do not see any fuses marked for tailgate, but all power windows and locks on the doors work. Any ideas where to look?
Ps - again accepted your answers for the third time. I would repost , but do not know how to be sure I get you. Thanks again!
No it has not been checked as I don't know what to check. Instructions please.
Also you did not answer about the tranny possibilities. A friend (mechanic) tells me I may be in real trouble with the tranny (very expensive to repair $3500). He says there are 2 drain plugs in the pan (there are) and if I loosen the center one and no fluid runs out it could indeed be low on fluid. He also states these trannys are junk. As I am on a fixed income ( retired) I would appreciate any info you can give me ( preferably a service manual for the tranny).
I am sorry to take so long to get back to you , but have been gone.
Also you did not address how to start a seperate post and still get you?
Well by the time I got this message I was through - FYI the center plug drains the pan and the side one is the fill - anyhow I drained (only about1.25qts) and refilled adding the Lucas also and - ready?? it works perfect! So many thanks. Also lubed up all rear tailgat parts with WD40 and although electrics still not working, gate opens and closes fine.
Will accept again when I get your next reply, and will be asking more for sure.
