Little help here. Tailgate stuck

Well, Loaded the Titan with some pinestraw(about 30 bails), went to open the tailgate, and it clicked once and opened about an1/8 th of an inch. Now it will close fully, and only open to that 1/8th of an inch position. Anyone ever have tis problem. How do I get the tailgate to open?? Disclaimer: I did a search.

The straps aren't stuck in the latch are they?

Re: Little help here. Tailgate stuck

Nope, I had a lot of pressure on the tailgate, and went to open it, and it just kind of clicked and went back a little. It will lock back up when I close it , but it won't open. Really weird.

Re: Little help here. Tailgate stuck

I have had a similair problem a while back, but it opened farther, I had a chunk of tile stuck at the base of the tailgate, so when you went to open it, there wasn't enough room to let the tailgate swing down.

Re: Little help here. Tailgate stuck

Just a guess but it sounds like you've got pine straw packed into the bottom area of the tailgate where it meets the bed. See if you can get a narrow object like a ruler to clear some of the crap away so it will pivot open.
