    I'm experiencing a closing issue with my 03 2500HD tailgate! It will open fine, but it won't close! It seems like the two latches on each end are not catching. Does this have anything to do with my tailgate handle? Or is it a latch issue? Any input, suggestions would help greatly.

    Thanks, T&M

    I had to lube both the latches on the ends and the pivot point beneath the tailgate handle to make it work properly. Any penetrating type lubricant should free them. you may need to lube them a few times to do the trick.
