Toyota Sequia Tailgate handle?

8 posts in this topic

Well, the handle or latch thinging to our 2004 Toyota broke today as we were sitting out on the ice at 3:30 in the morning. We have it schedualed to be repaired on Monday but is there a way to open it and get our fish houses out of hte back. It really sucks having to site outside when you so used to a shack. Thanks for any help guys.

K Dawg

BTW, I already tried a coat hanger, that didn't work.

Unless you can remove the inner panel to see what part is not doing what it suppose to do that you are likely S.O.L.! Those panels do not typically like to come out with the doors closed.

KDawg,

That is a sucky circumstance. We just broke ours on our 04 Sequoia this winter too, haven't had it fixed yet but it really sucks to only be able to use the window. I need to get it fixed THIS week! Your situation sounds like way more of a hassle, sorry.

Great, my wife has an 03 sequoia, it is only a matter of time until it breaks off! Airjer, is this common on these? I have heard that the under side of the back door likes to rust out.

We got it fixed today. Only a two hour fix time. Costs us 400 bucks. Tuff luck.

sparkyaber, if you start to notice the handle is become loose or it's becoming tuff to open, feels like the peice is stretching, thats when you'll have to watch out. It started to happen last winter when it got realll cold and know it broke so it held out for awhile.

The only problem they have with this is the part is made of plastic so I can see it becoming real brittle during the cold winter months. I'd just say becarful wiht it and don't ream on it.

Walleyedan, sorry to hear about your problem too.

Sound off.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
