1smartcarguy :

Hi, thank you for using justanswer.com. My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will help assist you today.

1smartcarguy :

more than likely the lock actuator has failed and will need replaced. give me a few minutes and i will get some more information on repairing this for you.

1smartcarguy :

im having some trouble finding good reference pictures for you, but it is fairly simple to do. you will need to remove the tailgate trim panel. it is held by 2 screws beneath the handle piece, and the rest are just clips. it will pop off with a little force.

1smartcarguy :

once you have the panel off you will see the actuator mechanism connected to your latch piece. simply disconnect 2 reod and the connector. remove the 3 large phillpis scrwes holding the latch in place and it will come out

    I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

    Linda B.USA

    Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

    EdUSA

    HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

    SummerUSA

    I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

    Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

    Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
