      Hi all,

      When I try to open the trunk, the tailgate/glass release handle just turns and turns and.......... I can't figure out how to get this trunk open.... This is on a 92 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition.

      I am guessing I have to remove the paneling on the inside of the tailgate to get to the lock/handle mechanism. Before I mangle it completely, I was hoping someone had already done this - there is no obvious way of removing the panel on the inside. Can it even be removed with the trunk closed? That would be unfortunate!

      Once I am in, does anyone have any tips on what I should be looking for?

      Thanks in advance for any tips on this.
