Pop and Lock Locking Tailgate Handle Installation - 2015 Toyota Tacoma
Today on our 2015 Toyota Tacoma we're going to show you how to install the Pop & Lock Custom Locking Tailgate Handle. This has the black finish and a manual lock. Part number is PAL5500. Turning counter-clockwise and bringing our key back to center will allow us to remove it, and our tailgate will remain unlocked. When we're ready to seal everything up, turn it that other way, which would be clockwise, bring it back to center, and now while the handle will still move, it's not actually going to work the mechanism and open our tailgate up. Now, the first thing we want to do is get a T30 Torx bit, and we're going to start removing the screws here on the back of the tailgate holding on the access panel. We can set those aside. We're going to lift up on the bottom of the access panel, and then slide it toward the tailgate, just like that.
