There is a small panel on the inside bed of the tail gate, take it off and check the pull rods, they have clips that hold it to the latch, replace them and in the meanwhile use your hand or needlenose pliers to pull the side with broken clip while also pulling up on the latch handle to pull the other side rod (unless both clips are broken then need to pull both) to open tail gate, this is if its the rod clips, if its the side latches take a butter knife and slide upward from the inside bed side and try to lift the arm that closes down on the side pins, also need someone to hold up on latch while doing this one.
