Re: jimmy tailgate lock

Its alot of work. I switched from a manual crank to an electric setup so I had most of it out already. You have to remove the motor, glass, and then the crank assembly to get to the switch. Some of this can be disconnected and moved aside but not easily. It takes a couple of hours at least.
