When you push down on it what does it do? Does it just lock all the way down?

Chevy Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Sorry one of my mechanics pulled me away for a second. Have you attempted to push it all the way down with one hand and then pull up with the other? It sounds like the return spring has broken.

Let me see if I can send you a diagram.

The repair manual shows a release lever rather than a push to release on this year model of truck. Yours is push to release right?
