86 tailgate won\'t open???

So I have tailgate issues. My 86 Grand wag has no real problems except for the fact that tthe tailgate won't open. The pass side latch works, but the drivers side doesn't. Upon inspedtion it appears that the shaft that runs all along the tailgate is simply failing to hit the latch, but no adjustment will fix it. Has this happened to anyone else? The only thing that makes sense is that something must be bent, but I can't seem to figure out what it is. Any ideas would be apprecited.
