Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab
I have a 1997 Ford Ranger. I can not lower the tail gate. I assume I must take the inside panel off but I would like a Repair Manual to see how to fix it.
I had the same issue and took the panel off. the handle is connected to 2 bars that are connected to both sides of the tail gate. One of the bars had somehow bent and came loose. All I did was straighten that bar enough to get it back into the slot on the handle, screwed a nut onto it so it couldnt pull out again. And never had a problem since.
If you look in between where the gate meets the fender , u can see the lock and push in to release the gate. Sorry , No repair manuel , I just start takin things apart
