Help lr3 tailgate won't open.

Hi Guy's

My wives 2006 lr3 (lower) tailgate won't open. i researched online and found a lot of the actuator problems. But this is not the case with ours. The upper opens, the lower is stuck. the right side is open but the left side is locked tight. i tried force etc no luck!

Any thoughts?


The dealer is 800 miles away so no option there

FWIW, mine (08) did the same thing. Upper opened just fine, lower wouldn't open. Difference was, both sides were stuck. I think you need to remove the carpeted panel & replace the linkage between the latch & the actuator.

Good luck! (Have you tried the D3 forum?)
