tailgate safety switch

Recommended Posts

i have noticed that sometimes my back window does not come down the first time. i go to the back and push on the tailgate as if it is not closed tightly and then it comes down. maybe 30 mins or so i have to do it again to make it go up. where is the safety switch located????

The switch is on the drivers side under the stricker catch

You may have to move the striker a little, but first I'd clean up the latch, it is probably some what corroded after so many years of use.

 

Good luck,

Oh yah, there is a possibility that all you may need is a new sleeve on the striker which is available from our sponsor The Bronco Graveyard http://broncograveyard.com/bronco/c-82 . However cleaning and lubricating the latch mechanism will not hurt. :)

 

Good luck,
