I have the same problem with my 03. However, i was able to carefully pry out the old latch. But can't get the new one in!!! Are there any of the rosebud clips to pop out under the cap along with the adhesive?

I just did this on my 2005 Avalanche and it does come out. As you are facing the tailgate from behind the truck, it will slide out to the right side of the truck. The sheet metal that is blocking it has enough give to get it out.

Does anyone how how to remove the tailgate if you are unable to open it up? My handle broke and the actuator rod on the left side of the truck fell down inside the tailgate. I fished around with a coat hanger and magnet for 2 hours today and can't get it.

I recently purchased a 2011 Avalanche that at this date has 724 miles on it. There is a pretty loud rattle coming from the rear passenger side area. It happens mostly when there are washboard types of bumps on the road. I have had it in the shop two Saturdays in a row and no one can seem to find it. Anyone else have any ideas?
