Hello. I have a 2007 Ridgeline, and I absolutely cannot get the tailgate to open on this truck. It won't open down flat, and it won't swing open either. I managed (with a lot of difficulty) to get the tonneau cover off, but since the thing won't swing open, I have no way to take the inside panel off of the tailgate to expose the latch. I have pulled, pounded and pried, but this thing is locked tight. I have scoured the internet for a solution, but nobody has a tip on how to get it open when it is jammed shut in BOTH directions. There are a couple of Youtube videos, but they all show the tailgate open when they are removing the panel. Most posts say, "take it to the dealer." Well, I'd like to know how the dealer plans to get the thing open. Any words of wisdom are greatly appreciated!
