How do you Change, Replace, or Install 1987-1996 Ford F-150, F-250, F-350 Tailgate Handle Replacement





Tools required:
  • T30 Torx Driver

  • 10mm socket/ratchet with extension


Step 1: Open the vehicle's tailgate, if possible.

NOTE: If your vehicle has a bed liner, you will need to remove it from the tailgate before proceeding.

Step 2: Loosen and remove the T30 Torx screws (4) that secures the access panel to the tailgate.

Step 3: You can now lift and remove the access panel.

Step 4: Loosen and remove the 10mm bolts (2) that secure the handle to the tailgate.

Step 5: You can now twist and slide the handle through the OUTSIDE of the tailgate.

Step 6: To mount the new handle, lift the locking mechanism and slide it into place.

Step 7: Tighten the 10mm bolts (2) to secure the handle to the tailgate.


NOTE: We recommend spraying some penetrating oil on the handle mechanisms, as they often seize over time.

Step 8: Reattach the access panel by tightening the T30 Torx screws.
