I'm pretty sure some of the engaging parts are plastic in there. Might have broke something.

Also if you wheel it much sometimes they shift a lil and stick.

Hope it helps!

Tap on the jeep around the lock while pulling the handle.

mine the handle wont even lift after I unlock it unless the whole handle assembly is in the exact right place. Not to mention the hydraulics are shot so I get hit in the head...on the list to replace lol
