Tailgate (Emergency Opening)
Both sections of the tailgate incorporate emergency release mechanisms for opening the tailgate in the event of electrical or component failures.
The upper tailgate release is a plastic pull tab positioned on the right side of the inner trim cover. Pulling the release tab will mechanically release the upper actuator.
The lower tailgate emergency release is accessed by removing the trim cover on the tail- gate section. With the gate closed, only the top section will be able to be loosened. The mechanical release is actuated by inserting a small screwdriver into the opening and press- ing the latch to the left.
