    What do you mean where is the lock? The lock itself is visible on the bottom edge of the tailgate. The thread I linked to is all to do with the electronic tailgate release. That part, the handle and switch, is inside the tailgate - my pics show where.

    Ah right - depends. If you have that option you''ll see a little round disc thing on the inside of the tailgate with a slot in it to put a key/screwdriver etc. - that's the mechanical release. They dropped it on later Signums so yours may not have it.

    Sounds like you haven't got the manual release then. Given yours is a 2006 model then that would be why, they dropped it on late 04 onwards I think, certainly 05 on.

    This is what you would have if you had it....
