cloth strap caught in tailgate latch, can't open door
Hello everyone, I hope someone can help. a small side strap of a backpack got caught exactly in the latching mechanism of the tailgate of my 2008 wrangler, didn't notice it in the dark, shut the door, went to open it later, no go. had to cut the backpack off. I took the little plastic vent looking panel off inside the cargo area near where the latch mechanism is, can reach inside, can flip the lock up and down, can maneuver the opening mechanism up and down that the push button on the outside latch operates, but that door is stuck really well. it feels like its locked. Anyone know how I can get the whole inside metal panel off of the tailgate and then how I go about getting that cloth out from between the latch parts? Thanks!!
