The liftgate won't lock.


Asked by Dec 13, 2013 at 07:19 PM about the 2008 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can't get the latch to catch to the liftgate. It's happened 4 times and I've been able to get it to lock, but now it won't. Any advise on how to fix this?

2 Answers

inspect for "crud" impeding movement....if there ain't none there would take to the catch with ball-peen and a chisel to pull it closer~

usually just needs oil in the right places, or latch adjustment of anchor
