Best Answer

I replaced mine by dismantling the plate on the backside of the tailgate (the side that you walk on when the gate is down). There are a number of screws to take out. Once the plate is off the latch (mine was black plastic) is exposed and can be removed with 2 bolts. I got a big surprise when I took this very simple plastic latch to the Ford dealer and found they wanted $65 (Canadian) for a new one

remove the panel from the gate (it may be difficult if the gate is still closed). there is a metal panel held w/ screws; remove that panel and the latch will be visible. pull both rods at the same time to unlatch the gate (careful, the space is small and the truck loves to pinch!).
