Tundra Tailgate Handle Replacement
Simply one more snappy video telling the best way to supplant the rear end handle on a 2000-2006 Toyota Tundra. This is a 2004 Tundra DoubleCab model, however it is the equivalent for the vast majority of the first era Tundras. toyota tundra tailgate parts diagram
T-30 Torx bit
10mm attachment wrench
little screwdriver (to pry out the lock chamber retainer cut)
This is a typical issue on the original Tundras. Here and there the handle can sever totally and you won’t almost certainly open the back end until you expel the entrance board within. The idea about My 2004 Toyota Tundra was broken, however fortunately it would in any case open the rear end. There are 8 screws that hold the entrance board set up. As I referenced in the rundown of devices required, you will require a T-30 torx bit to expel them. When you expel the board, you will most likely draw on the two metal poles to unlatch the rear end at the two closures. The plastic handle is held set up with two 10mm jolts. On my truck, the two jolts were free on the grounds that the metal additions had broken free of the plastic lodging. The metal force poles are held set up with two plastic clasps that are anything but difficult to expel without the utilization of apparatuses. Simply turn the clasp and haul out the metal draw bar.
The first rear end handle has a key chamber introduced, and you simply need to evacuate it and introduce it on the new handle. You can perceive how I did it in the video. Only a snappy note however, I reused the holding cut from the old handle on the grounds that the new clasp appeared to be too shaky to even consider holding the lock chamber set up. The new clasp on the new handle may have worked fine and dandy, however I felt progressively happy with transforming it back to the first clasp.
Subsequent to introducing the lock chamber in the new rear end handle, it is prepared to return in. The elastic gasket piece on the handle will cut the handle set up enabling you to introduce the two 10mm jolts. Simply kindly DO NOT over-fix these jolts or you will break the new handle you just purchased. The following stage is to cut in the metal force bars and test the handle to check that it fills in as it should. It’s a smart thought to test the lock system with the key also. toyota tundra tailgate parts diagram
For whatever length of time that the back end handle discharges the hooks on the two sides of the bed, you are prepared to reinstall the entrance board.
The most effective method to Open a Broken Tailgate
Getting a pickup truck’s rear end open when it is broken or stuck is a difficult issue. You have to adjust the need to open the back end with the potential harm you could do to the truck. Luckily, when a back end is broken, it is normally by virtue of an awful pivot or stuck switch. Both of these can be illuminated with some basic hand instruments and a fluid oil.
Snatch the rear end hook handle and take a stab at dismantling it to the vacant position. Feel for any dry development or coarseness in the handle development.
Splash the oil into the handle instrument. Splash a liberal sum into the component and any moving part encompassing the handle. Give the ointment a chance to absorb.
Get the screwdriver and move the side of the back end where it joins to the truck side by means of the pivots. Slide the screwdriver into the pivot system and attempt to physically discharge the dark elastic gasket that holds the back end to the truck pivot pole. Push the screwdriver up to discharge the rear end.
Drop the back end down. Examine the pivot and bar. Splash down the pivot and pole with the grease to avoid the staying later on, refuting the need to open the rear end with the screwdriver. Wipe down any abundance oil with the clothes.
