Tailgate Removal Help

Recommended Posts

Tried to remove my 2008 Sierra tailgate on the weekend without success. It has the ezlift option.

Never had a problem removing the tailgate on any of my other trucks. Is there a trick to this one?

Removed the cables and lifted off the right hand side, but the left hand side would not pull out. Is it be keyed for the torsion bar? Help please.

Page 2-14 of your owner's manual. EZ Lift tailgates are the same as all others.

same as other trucks. Just might be tough to pull out the first time or 2. I remember the first time I pulled off the gate after I got the truck and it was just really tight. Get the right side up and out and then give it a good tug to the right and it should come right off.

Trick was that you had to just barely open the tail gate, then the left side slid right out.

Models without the EZlift option could be fully open and would slide out.
