    When I ordered the part, the postage was more than the part. Also I have read that some people continue to have problems even after the "new" part has been installed. I don't have the part number any more--sorry

    I’m pretty sure this is it but how are people still having problems?

    That is the replacement part I think. I'm not sure about the continuing problems it's been awhile since I read about it--some people just reported that the tailgate still fell down while driving down the road. Could be the replacement part was not installed correctly or ????????? I'm not sure
