    04 Liberty Swing Gate

    I have a 2004, Jeep Liberty Sport. The swing gate is stuck in the latched position. There are two issues. I can not change the brake lights without being able to open the gate. Secondly, I can't replace parts that are bad without being able to open the gate. Most forums note the manual unlock inside the gate, itself. It's normally a little yellow tab. For some reason, my variant of the latch motor does not have this and I have no way of opening the gate. How can I get this open, to at least change the brake lights.
