Tailgate Lock Assembly Replacement Service

What is the Tailgate Locking Assembly all about?

A tonneau cover can be installed to cover your possessions in the truck bed, and a tailgate locking assembly can be used to lock the tailgate closed. Manufacturers may use a manual key-operated lock, power locking tailgate, or no locking device at all. When a tailgate lock is in place, there are mechanical components that firmly latch the tailgate handle. When the tailgate locking assembly is faulty, the tailgate lock cylinder with either not turn, or will turn without changing the lock position. If a power tailgate locking assembly is faulty, pressing the lock or unlock function will not change the lock position either.

Keep in mind:

  • The tailgate locking assembly can be mechanically operated with a key, opened by pushing a button on the car’s inside, or accessed remotely by an incorporated electronic actuator.

How it's done:

  • The tailgate is lifted and inside cover is removed for access
  • The defective tailgate locking assembly is removed
  • The new tailgate locking assembly is installed
  • The tailgate inside cover is reinstalled
  • The rear tailgate is opened and closed to check locking assembly operation

Our recommendation:

Mechanical or key-operated tailgate locks can and should be lubricated every service interval to prevent corrosion and seizing. The lock should last the lifetime of your vehicle if properly lubricated and cleaned. If your liftgate locking assembly is not working as it should, have one of our expert mechanics inspect and repair it.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Tailgate Locking Assembly?

  • Tailgate lock cylinder will not turn
  • Tailgate lock does not latch in place when the cylinder is locked
  • Power lock control for the tailgate makes a buzzing sound but doesn’t lock (or unlock) the latch

How important is this service?

As it is not a critical component to your vehicle’s operation, the tailgate locking assembly does not have to be repaired until you are prepared to do it. The contents of your truck box will not be secured until it is fixed.

People say the nicest things



Jason is knowledgable, reliable and friendly person. He took his time to explain things about my car. I highly recommend YourMechanic and Jason's service.



Very impressed with the quality of work. Ned was on time and on budget. There were no surprise extra costs. Ned even helped me out with my other car, even though I didn't have an appointment for the other car. He took care of all of my car problems and he even found me a coupon for an oil change. I will be using this service again.



Whitney was obvious exsperienced and knowlegeable of the problem. His actions was that of a true profesional
