Icon5 1996 Tailgate Latch

My new-to-me 1996 Ranger's tailgate latch won't open the gate.

I've searched the forum and most people's problems seem to be with a broken handle. Mine is with the latch itself.

I opened the access hatch and the right side clip that holds the rod to the latch is broken. The previous owner had tried to zip-tie it back but that didn't last.

I haven't been able to find a source for this small plastic clip. Before I go to the dealer and find out just how much they might want to charge for it, does anyone have suggestions on where I might find an aftermarket replacement?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum

LMC Truck usually has parts like that

If its what you described then it is #12 here, lower(1993-2011): Truck Parts and Truck Accessories

Only 75cents, so even if dealer doubles or triples the price it should be cheap enough

This is exactly what I was looking for!

Thank you, reading through the posts, this is a great forum. The only other car forum where I've been a regular is the Honda S2000 forum.

This one looks like a great resource while I get the old girl back in shape. Next stop, that miss in the #1 cylinder...
