Do you have the same problem I did last year. The tailgate window refused to open when I pressed the release button. I pulled it out and found that a small part of the mechanism had fatigued and broken off. I took that bit right out and put it all back together.

Now the tail gate opens by turning the key to the left and then pressing the button, still with the key in the lock. When it opens I can then remove the key. But I cannot just unlock the button and open the tail window just by pressing the button, without the key inserted. Does not seem to be an issue. At least I know the back window is always locked and secure whenever it is closed.

I've got the exact same problem as you millsy, it only happened recently but it's a pain in the bum. Going to have to pull my thumb out and fix it up soon.

I'm pretty sure a wrecker in Sydney has one I can call him tomorrow, I gather you want the whole latch not just the tumbler?
I assume its a Shorty

Get a fuel lid tumbler from Supercheap about $22 should fill the hole. I was going to buy one last week as when painting the fuel cap door I removed the lock and lost the sucker somewhere.

The LWB and SWB tailgate barrells are the same
A fuel tank flap barrell is different
Main roads QLD dont inspect the cars at rego time anymore
Go in pay ya money get ya receipt and of ya go
Tailgate barrells sheeet im getting between $30-$50 2nd hand if and when i can get them
(Thats working and with keys)
Aftermarket ones from others that have bought dont fit
Id have a barrell here,but the tailgate is immaculate wouldnt be keen to split it

ronandju,
Do a search bud
The answer is there

Haha thats the exact same thing with mine it wasnt working one day so i had a look and there was a spring that had broken so i took it out and now to unlock it i put in the key turn it left then push and you cant keep it unlocked without a key...but as you said its good coz u cant accidently leave it unlocked.
