First of all, The handle does not lay flat when the tailgate is closed. I have researched and feel that this is why:

The glass operates as designed from the switch in the tailgate and the switch on the dash. The passenger side releases like it is supposed to. The driverside does not. The drivers side is also missing the nylon (I am not sure if it is nylon or not) bushing on the strike bolt.
I plan to fix the release mechanism as shown in the link above and find the nylon bushing, but I was wondering if there is anything else I need to look at that might cause the drivers side not to open. I would like to order all the parts at one time if possible. Anybody have any other ideas as to why the latch on the drivers side won't release?

I have a problem with my tailgate, the pull lever to release tail gate has one stripped mounting bolt and it is hard to get the catch to release. Sounds like you have a different problem but you might want to make sure your lever is secured.
