Honda-Man, I have an issue with the outside tailgate handle…

Hi Honda-Man, I have an issue...
Hi Honda-Man,
I have an issue with the outside tailgate handle on a 1998 Honda Cr-v where the handle sticks in the open position resulting in the tailgate not closing. Since you are familiar with Hondas do you know if this requires replacement. If so, where can I purchase?
I have already tried closing the handle but this needs to be done constantly.
Thanks for your help!

Welcome back and thanks for requesting me!

Sounds like the return spring has broken. After 20 years I think you got your moneys worth! I have attached the instructions for replacing the tailgate handle. Click HERE for the Honda part price and site to order one if desired.

You know the drill, if you need more help ask otherwise please leave a rating.

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

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
